Your MP has a voice in Parliament. As the Energy Bill returns to Parliament on Tuesday 5th September 2023, it is crucial that they attend and support amendments to tackle the cost of living crisis and lower energy bills for good.
Caroline Lucas MP is hosting a debate on Fossil Fuels and Increases in the Cost of Living in Parliament at Westminster Hall on the 11th of January from 9.30am to 11am. It's a great opportunity for us to show MPs why fixing the cost of living crisis means taking the leap away from fossil fuels - and why it needs to happen now. But first, we need to get MPs in the hall.
UPDATE: The Energy Bill returns to Parliament on Tuesday 5th September, and it’s the last real chance for debate on what gets passed into law. This is a critical opportunity for MPs to take action on the cost-of-living crisis and fix our broken energy system for good. That's why we're asking you to email your MP urgently today and ask them to attend the debate and support our amendments.
The Energy Bill is the first piece of legislation to be passed by the new Department for Energy Security and Net Zero. It’s a chance for the government to take meaningful action on the root causes of the energy crisis.
If we want this bill to make a difference, we need MPs to attend the debate tomorrow and support amendments to:
We have already made massive progress on improving the bill and the Warm This Winter coalition has managed to table several amendments to make up for what was missing in the original bill.
Together, we can make sure that this bill makes a real difference and show the government that energy is the top priority for us all.
There's a template you can use, but a more personal message can make a big impact. If you're able to, you could make your email more powerful by writing in your own words and telling your MP about your own experience of the current crisis and what it means for your local community. If your MP has signed the Warm This Winter pledge (check here), thank them and highlight this as an opportunity to act on their promise.
With your help, we can seize this crucial moment and put pressure on the government to take action and fix our broken energy system for good.
