Sajid Javid said: “The rise in the cost of living has been unavoidable as we face global challenges and the repercussions of Putin’s illegal war in Ukraine.

“Whilst we can’t completely prevent these rises, where we can help, we absolutely will.”

The Health Secretary has claimed that the freeze on charges will save a total of £17 million, with prices said to remain fixed until next year.

In addition to the suspended price rise, the Government has made clear that the low income scheme which offers people help with payments is still in place, along with the free prescription service.
