Theresa May is facing a major rebellion from Tory MPs over her failure to tackle high energy prices.

Some 76 Tories and 116 Labour, SNP and Green MPs have written to the Prime Minister to demand she honours a commitment to cap consumers' energy bills.

Some backbenchers are reportedly considering tabling an amendment to Philip Hammond's next Budget to force the Government's hand.

The Independent reported that 76 Conservative MPs have signed a cross-party letter calling on May to honour the so-called ‘Energy Price Cap’ she pledged before the 8 June general election. And if she doesn’t, they could force an amendment to the autumn budget; potentially damaging May’s already weak position.
