Question

According to Public Health England (PHE), about 40 people in the Brent are expected to die as energy bills surge during plummeting temperatures. However, the statistics, the most recent collected by PHE, are for the year 2010/11, raising concerns that the death toll could be higher as heating costs rise. Can you do anything to tackle fuel poverty?
