East Riding Council has asked people not to ring them about the £150 energy rebate as officials work to process the first batch of payments. A spokesperson said they were currently receiving a significant number of calls about the rebates every day and said the first lot of the £150 payments should reach around 17,000 households who pay council tax by direct debit by the end of next week.

In addition, letters have been sent to those households who do not pay council tax by direct debit, but the council’s spokesperson said some may not have arrived yet.
