4:34pm 2nd December 2013

Thirsk and Malton MP Anne McIntosh is calling for more choice on green charges in energy bills.

In a debate in the House of Commons, Anne McIntosh asked if a tick box could be put on bills for customers to choose where the green energy levies, which make up around £82 of an average bill, could be spent.

The MP also raised concerns about the increasing costs of green levies on customers.

But Energy Minister Ed Davey told Anne McIntosh that her suggestion could create uncertainty which could put off investment into green energy.
