Liz Truss – 2022 Comments on the Energy Price Guarantee

The comments made by Liz Truss, the Prime Minister, on 8 September 2022.

Decades of short-term thinking on energy has failed to focus enough on securing supply – with Russia’s war in Ukraine exposing the flaws in our energy security and driving bills higher. I’m ending this once and for all.

I’m acting immediately so people and businesses are supported over the next two years, with a new Energy Price Guarantee, and tackling the root cause of the issues by boosting domestic energy supply.

Extraordinary challenges call for extraordinary measures, ensuring that the United Kingdom is never in this situation again.
