Green Taxes

Recent editorials referring to a leaked Government memo suggested that scrapping ‘green taxes’ would save households 30% – or £300 – on their current energy bills. In fact the memo, which was reported by several newspapers, was outlining estimates for 2020 and should have specified electricity prices rather than energy bills.

[I’ve found one version of this story on the Mail site. It has been corrected and a description of the correction has been added. The word “editorials” suggests that there may be more stories containing this error.]

[Update: I’ve added a link to a second editorial. This one has also been corrected and a description of the correction has been added. Thanks to MacGuffin for the pointer.]
