Energy bills will fall says Energy Secretary Chris Huhne

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne denied power bills were increasing due to government environmental policies - and said the rises were due to world prices.

He did not agree with leading figures from the UK energy sector who said bills would continue to rise, but claimed home-grown "clean green secure energy" would protect consumers from the shock of power bill increases over the last year.

The Liberal Democrat said the policies would lead to lower bills by 2020. He was speaking after a Politics Show video looked at the coaltion position on green policies and energy prices.
