The MP for Romsey, Hampshire, joined an energy protest outside parliament recently as many consumers have chosen to switch gas companies to pursue lower bills.
According to the Hampshire Chronicle, Sandra Gidley sat with pensioner Margaret Joseph in a living-room mock-up to highlight the plight of thousands of senior citizens who are currently struggling in fuel poverty.
Over 5,500 Romsey residents are having to allocate more than ten per cent of their annual income towards energy bills, but a proposed fuel poverty bill could affect their fortunes for the better by helping to make homes more energy-efficient.
Ms Gidley told the paper: "Improved energy efficiency is a powerful and sustainable way to bring down people's energy bills and make homes healthier and, ultimately, it could save lives."
She added that she will do all she can to convince her fellow MPs to support the bill, which has been proposed by the Liberal Democrats.
The government recently announced plans to insulate every home in the UK over the coming years.
