Opposition Day — Energy Prices — 6 Nov 2013 at 18:46

The majority of MPs voted against freezing electricity and gas prices for 20 months and against proposals to reform the energy market including by introducing a new more powerful regulator and putting all over 75s on the cheapest tariff.

The text of the rejected amendment stated:

  • That this House
  • calls on the Government to freeze electricity and gas prices for 20 months whilst legislation is introduced to ring-fence the generation businesses of the vertically integrated energy companies from their supply businesses,
  • to require all electricity generators and suppliers to trade their power via an open exchange,
  • to establish a tough new regulator with the power to force energy suppliers to pass on price cuts when wholesale costs fall, and
  • to put all over-75-year-olds on the cheapest tariff.
