“It is really important to be prepared for winter and I want all my constituents in Central Suffolk and North Ipswich to understand what help is available for them, and for their family and friends,” he said.
“Being energy efficient and keeping bills under control is so important and I advise residents to get in touch with their energy supplier to find out what support is on offer.
“There are a number of simple steps that everyone can take to make sure they’re doing all they can to keep their energy bills down and their homes warm.”
Stephen Beynon, Managing Director of British Gas Residential Energy said: “Winter can be a challenging time for households and many people will be concerned about their winter energy bill. “There is help available and we urge customers to get in touch to find out what advice and support is on offer.”
