Shadow Welsh Secretary Owen Smith has sharply criticised the decision by SSE to increase energy prices.
Families in Wales are being particularly hard hit by this increase.
Wales – where there are more than one million SSE customers - already suffers from the highest energy bills and lowest levels of disposable income of anywhere in Britain.
This is nothing more than an act of gross profiteering. People in Wales are clearly being ripped off by this energy company and it needs to stop.
People are already suffering under David Cameron's cost of living crisis and now, thanks to his failure to stand up to the big energy companies, consumers will be hit by ever high bills, with SSE increasing prices by nearly 10%. This is a sign that David Cameron only stands up for the privileged few.
If ever there was proof that Ed Miliband was right and we need a freeze on energy prices, this is it.
