For immediate release
Responding to the National Infrastructure Commission report suggesting that bills could rise by £400 a year to cover the cost of net zero, John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“The net zero target must not see working taxpayers landed with the bill.
“With the highest tax levels in 70 years, family finances are already strained and they cannot be expected to pay more for food, goods and travel.
“Ministers must promise to protect Brits from any green cost hikes.”
