Ed Miliband's pledge to freeze gas and electricity prices is strongly supported by the British public, although many voters are sceptical about the Labour Leader's ability to deliver on his promise a new poll has revealed.
The ComRes/Independent survey found 80 per cent of the public support the idea of prices being frozen while the “Big Six” energy companies are reformed, with just 17 per cent saying they oppose the move.
Ninety per cent of Labour supporters and 69 per cent of Conservatives support plans for a energy price freeze.
Despite the support, just 41 per cent of Britons believe Mr Miliband will “deliver on his promise” if Labour wins the next general election, compared with 52 per cent who forecast he will not.
