Energy crisis: Chancellor told to keep green levies in cost of living crunch

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Energy crisis: Chancellor told to keep green levies in cost of living crunch” – below is their description.

It’s less than two months since the COP26 summit ended with a promise to speed up action on climate change. Now the day to day politics of soaring costs of living are leaving many Conservatives feeling rather blue about going green.

But green Tories are fighting back against their more traditional colleagues, urging the chancellor not to ditch environmental levies to help householders, but to look at other measures instead.
