London, United Kingdom, August 23, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Caroline Flint, Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, has said that if the Labour Party wins the next election, they will strip the licenses from firms that continually fail to meet the standards required of them.
Commenting, Kevin Burke, representative of boiler, home emergency and appliance cover specialists 247 Home Rescue, said, "It is great to see energy company misbehaviour in the spotlight. Hopefully the Labour Party's announcement will put gas and electricity suppliers' customer service in the firing line in the run-up to the 2015 General Election.
"The UK's energy market appears to have been unfair for many years, and with consumers still incredibly reticent to switch energy suppliers, market pressure and competition within the industry will undoubtedly be failing to work as well as it should.
"All political parties need to turn up the heat on gas and electricity suppliers. Bills are rising well above the rate of inflation, and people are finding it increasingly difficult to balance their budgets. This state of affairs needs to change as quickly as possible.
"Consumers who wish to take control of their energy bills should not wait until after the General Election; switching today will save them money tomorrow and in the years to come."
