People are signing up for gas deal

SOUTH Holland residents are already signing a new register in a bid to get a cut-price deal on gas and electricity.

Council leader Gary Porter hopes thousands will sign so the district council can save consumers around ten per cent on their bills by negotiating a deal with a supplier.

The plan went live on the council website on Monday and within hours dozens of people put their name to it.

Coun Porter said: “There is a strong public feeling for somebody to do something about the rising cost of domestic fuel bills and already people across South Holland are making their feelings known.

“We are expecting this to generate massive interest. But we need more and more people to sign up to the register to demonstrate they are not willing to accept escalating costs and we, as a council, are confident that we can negotiate a better deal.”
