To ask His Majesty's Government what steps they will take to support hospices with energy costs after the Energy Bill Relief Scheme comes to an end in March; and what conversations, if any, they have had with Hospice UK about rising energy costs.

Discussions have taken place with a number of charities and businesses regarding increased energy costs, and the Government is aware of the impact this is having on the hospice sector. The Government will continue to provide support through the recently announced Energy Bill Discount Scheme, which will run from April until March 2024, and continue to provide a discount to eligible non-domestic customers, including the hospice sector.
