Labour leader Ed Miliband has said "nothing more than a price freeze and energy market reset will do" after the Government announced its shake-up of green levies.
Mr Miliband wrote on Twitter:
Only one question you need to ask today: are energy bills still rising? Nothing less than a price freeze & energy market reset will do.
David Cameron’s energy announcement today: Your bills are still going up, energy companies are still being protected by his government.
The coalition has unveiled measures it says will knock £50 off the average energy bill, but some of that cost will be absorbed by taxpayers.
The Government has laid out its ideas on how to cut energy bills this winter - but the plan has been put together in haste.
