House of Lords
Lord Kennedy of Southwark (Labour)
To ask Her Majesty's Government what action they are taking to make it easier for consumers to make an informed choice when deciding whether or not to switch energy suppliers.
Lord Marland (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Energy and Climate Change; Conservative)
The Government support work being undertaken by Ofgem in its retail market review in relation to energy tariffs. Ofgem's proposals, published in December 2011, include a range of measures that will require suppliers to simplify tariff structures and billing information. The proposals should make tariffs easier to compare and help customers make better informed choices.
