Energy Companies and Prices

In Commons questions to the Department for Energy and Climate Change, I asked the Secretary of State about energy prices. The rising cost of energy is an important concern for hardworking people in Dover and Deal.

The last Government left a legacy of the 'Big Six' energy companies. This oligopoly stifles competition and leads to higher bills. I asked the Secretary of State to consider how policy and energy mix also impacts on our bills. I also made the point that energy prices in Germany have increased enormously in recent years due to their Government's policies, harming businesses and family budgets. We need a competitive energy market in the UK that keeps prices low and helps businesses and manufacturers to grow.
