Is the government reconsidering a windfall tax on energy companies?

Political Editor

The question of whether to impose a windfall tax on energy companies was the main topic at prime minister’s questions.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said the government should “stop dithering” and introduce the tax.

Boris Johnson said the government was already helping people, but claimed he didn’t want to raise taxes.

So is the government planning more help with rising costs?
