Your views: Ministers' pledge to energy cut bills by £50

The Government said its energy announcement will save households an average of £50 a year.

Here are a selection of ITV News viewers' opinions on the subject:

With all the profits they make they could let us all have a year's free energy!

– Judi Desouza
