Responding to the annual energy statement, Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said:
“There will be no great applause from the millions of consumers worrying about rising energy costs for the Government committing to make the regulators simply do their job.
“There is a huge weight of expectation that the Government and regulators will now deliver the radical changes that consumers need. Structural reforms to separate the wholesale energy market from domestic supply, and the Government cutting the costs its policies add to consumers’ bills, are needed to effectively keep prices in check.
“We call on the Chancellor to stand up for consumers when he stands up in the House of Commons to deliver this year’s Autumn Statement on the 4th December.”
