Today, Prime Minister Liz Truss has announced that Government will be providing businesses with support for their energy bills over the next six months.

“It is encouraging to see that the Prime minister, Liz Truss, has taken immediate action against the on-going energy crisis following her announcement to support homeowners and businesses alike,” said Sue Robinson, Chief Executive of the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA).

“The NFDA recently wrote a letter to the Chancellor of Exchequer highlighting that without urgent support from government, dealers’ energy bills are expected to rise by an unsustainable 250%.

“Whilst the full details of the support package are yet to be announced, financial assistance for our members’ businesses is largely welcomed.”
