Caroline Flint MP, Labour's Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary, said in response to reports of alleged energy market manipulation:
"These are very concerning reports, which if true suggest shocking behaviour in the energy market that should be dealt with strongly.
"For months Labour has said that customers are getting a raw deal and the gas and electricity companies should be forced to sell the energy they generate into a pool, to open up the market and ensure fairer consumer prices. These reports make the need for action all the more urgent."<div>
