Tax the oil & gas bosses

While energy bills rise for families, energy producing firms are making record profits.

It's time for a one-off 'Robin Hood Tax' on the oil and gas barons' mega profits to fund extra support for those hardest hit by energy price hikes.

The levy would raise £5 billion to help the most vulnerable by doubling and extending the Warm Homes Discount, doubling the Winter Fuel Allowance, and helping reduce bills in the long term by investing in insulation and energy saving.

The Conservatives have ignored the problem of rising bills for too long. We need action now so people aren't forced to choose between heating and eating this winter.

Back the Liberal Democrats' call for a tax on the record profits of oil and gas producers, to fund support for those hardest hit by price rises.
