Motion text

That this House notes that all major domestic energy suppliers have implemented significant consumer price increases in response to rising wholesale gas costs; further notes the recent European Commission report which found that anti-competitive practices by continental energy companies are keeping UK wholesale prices artificially high; welcomes the Government's commitment to ensure market abuses on the continent are tackled in order to bring prices down; further notes with concern that vulnerable people will be most affected by rising energy prices; and calls on all energy suppliers in the UK to follow the lead set by British Gas and EDF Energy to introduce social tariffs for their most vulnerable customers to mitigate the worst effects of recent rises.
