The Government is currently considering all aspects of its future relationship with the EU, including the arrangements for trading energy.

As my Rt Hon Friend the Secretary of State has told the House there are great advantages in having continued access to free markets. Energy is an area in which there is strong alignment of interests between the UK and EU.

Our priority is maintaining affordable, clean and secure energy supplies for businesses and households.
