Local hustings are one of the easiest ways to challenge your candidates and keep them on their toes.
What is a hustings?
Potential questions for the candidates
We have created four hustings cards, each with a different suggested question about fuel poverty. Please click on the links below!
We have also included some background information in case you want to challenge their reply. If it’s convenient, it can be good to gather some information about your local area or you might want to mention your own situation or a friend’s!
We have hustings questions about:
- the unacceptably high cost of energy for households using prepayment meters
- our leaky, draughty homes that need insulation
- renationalising our energy system
- supporting and implementing the Energy Bill of Rights
Alternatively, if these questions do not address the issues that you or your community face, they can be mixed together or adapted to include local information or a personal situation.
These questions can also be used when your local candidates are canvassing in your community or area.
