SNP urges cost of living focus ahead of King’s Speech

The SNP is advocating for a £400 energy bill rebate as part of their call to address the cost of living crisis

In the lead-up to the King’s Speech, the SNP has placed a strong emphasis on addressing the issue of rising energy costs.

Central to their agenda is a proposed £400 energy bill rebate, aimed at providing relief to households grappling with the financial strain of escalating energy expenses.

The SNP’s call for this energy bill rebate forms part of their broader push to tackle the cost of living, particularly in the context of the ongoing economic challenges facing the nation.

The party’s Economy spokesperson has challenged both Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and the Leader of the Opposition, Sir Keir Starmer, to support this initiative.

Drew Hendry said: “Westminster is pushing Scots into poverty – and leaving millions to fend for themselves as the Tories tank the UK economy and send the cost of living soaring”.
