Brexit could drive up energy bills, says union


 

Energy bills could increase for millions of consumers if the UK votes to leave the EU, the UNISON union has warned. In a statement on Monday 20 June, the union warned against “fanciful claims” being made by the Vote Leave campaign, which has promised measures to reduce energy bills in the event of Brexit. UNISON added that leaving the EU could “seriously harm” the UK’s attempts to meet its energy demand and climate change targets. General secretary Dave Prentis said: “Outrageous claims as to how consumers would be better off were the UK to leave Europe are yet another attempt by the Vote Leave campaign to mislead the public.”
