Cost of living: Keir Starmer set to call for energy price cap freeze - BBC Business

Quick Summary:

The Labour leader will set out his plan on Monday - with no detail yet on how the freeze would be funded.

It has already been announced by the government that all households in England, Scotland and Wales, where the cap applies, will receive £400 to help pay rising fuel bills this autumn.

Sir Keir Starmer is expected to make the call on Monday, in which he will explain how Labour would pay for the plan if it was in power.
