Meg Hiller MP, Labour's Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary said in response to Ofgem’s energy market proposals announced today:
“It is time the Tory-led Government showed it understands people's needs. We see energy bills and profits rising so Ofgem’s announcement of an overhaul of the energy markets in favour of consumers is welcome and necessary. Families are being squeezed by increased energy bills. They need to know that they are being treated fairly.
“Increasing transparency to enable new entrants to the market will create a better deal for consumers. But does this go far enough? There is a long way to go to make sure this delivers for people.
"We welcome Ofgem’s proposals but we will be pushing the government to make sure they do all they can to improve families living standards.”<div>
