The Queen’s speech is due to be delivered by the Prince of Wales at 11.30am, after the monarch withdrew due to ongoing health issues
John Allan, the chairman of Tesco and a former president of the CBI, has joined those calling for a windfall tax on energy companies. Asked what he would like to see in the Queen’s speech, he told the Today programme this morning:
First of all, I think action to help people cope with a very, very sharp increase in energy prices.
It’s harder for people to mitigate energy than it is with food, and I think there’s an overwhelming case for a windfall tax on profits from those energy producers fed back to those most in need of help with energy prices.
