Ask An Expert: ENERGY

This event is now over. Thanks for your questions. Experts MSE Andrew & MSE Clare have finished posting replies to many of them

Please note: our experts DO NOT offer personal financial advice. Heed the MSE Forum rules and keep it clean, kind & MoneySaving.

🗳️ A message from Martin Lewis:

"It’s the biggest consumer decision most people will make this year – so, as always, we want to ensure you know what you’re buying… The general election will impact almost every area of consumer life, from economic strength, to benefits, consumer rights, health of the high street, work rights, rents, homebuying and more. Yet some of these areas get glossed over amongst the political fire that flies during a campaign.

"That’s why since 2010 we’ve run the MoneySavingExpert Leaders' Debate every general election. We ask the leaders of the main parties to get into the nitty gritty of the biggest personal finance and consumer questions you, me and the MSE team have. This isn’t about party politics – it’s about practical policy.

"So we want your suggested consumer finance questions. We can’t include them all, but we’ll try and include the most common, as well as looking for powerful individual stories – so we can help you cut through the noise."
This board is now closed to questions. Thank you to everyone who participated! Stay tuned to MSE to see how the leaders answer the questions that got selected.
We'd like to remind Forumites to please avoid political debate on the Forum. This is to keep it a safe and useful space for MoneySaving discussions. Threads that are - or become - political in nature may be removed in line with the Forum’s rules. Thank you for your understanding.
