Fuel Poverty charity National Energy Action (NEA) today expressed great sadness at the death of Malcolm Wicks MP.
Jenny Saunders Chief Executive NEA said
“Malcolm was a champion of poor and vulnerable households who struggled to pay their energy bills. His book ‘Old and Cold – Hypothermia and Social Policy’ increased understanding of the terrible consequences of poor housing, low income and high energy bills. It helped shape progressive policies which Malcolm, in his ministerial roles responsible for Energy, and Works and Pensions, took forward with great passion. He was deeply concerned that policies should lead to practical, deliverable solutions that would directly benefit those most in need. Whist demonstrating endless compassion for the most disadvantaged in our communities, he was challenging and demanding of those who could make a difference.”
All at NEA send their sympathy to Malcolm’s family and friends.
