Dr Dan Urges 'Get Ready for Winter'

With winter on the way, Dr Dan has called on his constituents to ensure they are taking advantage of free help and support with home energy insulation to keep warm and reduce home energy bills.

Dr Dan, who is a practicing NHS doctor and also a member of the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee in Parliament, said:

"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. 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.

"In the long term, energy efficiency is still the best way to save money on bills. British Gas is pleased to be working with the UK Government to roll out free loft and cavity wall insulation for eligible households, and you don't need to be a British Gas customer to sign up.

"We're also proud to be leading the way in the roll-out of smart meters which enable you to see how much energy you are using in pounds and pence and identify where savings can be made."

As a remain voter, I am sympathetic to her position, but does she agree that sometimes one of the main drivers of tourism is the exchange rate, and one thing we have seen is increased tourism as a result of decreased value of the pound against the euro and other currencies, perhaps as a direct consequence of that Brexit vote? I know she...
