Which? responds to British Gas plans to scrap standard tariffs 

Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said:

“Scrapping standard tariffs ​is​ a big move if it means millions of British Gas’​ existing customers are now going to engage in the energy market. Changes that are aimed at ​delivering more​ customer engagement are welcome, although we need to see whether this does lead to people getting a better deal.

“Any customers on poor value standard tariffs should shop around now as there are cheaper deals to be found on the market.”
