60% back the abolition of green taxes
By 60% to 18% those in the poll said they opposed when asked this question: “At the moment the average annual household energy bill includes £128 in “green taxes”, used to subsidise items such as wind farms, and other government measures. By 2020, this figure will be around £270 Do you support or oppose the existence of these charges?”
Just 25% told the firm that Cameron was rolling back green taxes because he was worried about families facing high energy bills. 43% said the move came because he was worried about popularity of EdM’s price freeze and 17% because of John Major’s intervention.
By 61% to 11% those sampled said they supported the Cameron’s move.
54% of those sampled said they thought that the EdM price cap would not work because the energy firms would raise prices before and after.
47% in the poll rejected David Cameron’s description of EdM’s plan as a “con” – 34% said it was.
