Price drops 'not enough' - 23/01/2012

Recent cuts to gas and electricity prices do not go far enough to help the UK's poorest families.

That's according to Save the Children, which said the decreases were significantly less than the hikes imposed by the major energy suppliers last year, the Daily Mirror reported.

It was observed the moves will only cut around 10p a day from the annual bill, while some customers will not see the falls come in until March.

A spokesman for the charity said: "The recent price drops from the big six energy companies didn't match previous rises and they won't be nearly enough for families living in poverty."

He called for more help to be made available for struggling families by ensuring as many people as possible receive the Warm Homes Discount.

Last week, research by Consumer Focus found only a fifth of people are confident they are on the cheapest gas and electricity tariff offered by their provider.
