AN MP has printed off 40,000 booklets for each own in his constituency to offer energy saving tips.

James Wharton, Conservative MP for Stockton South, says the booklet explains some of the steps the Government is taking to tackle energy costs, including removing green levies and advice on making sure residents are on the cheapest levies.

The MP, who will be fighting one of the most marginal seats in the country next year, said booklet has been paid for entirely by fundraising.
