To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what discussions his Department has had with (a) the Competition and Markets Authority, (b) Ofgem and (c) energy suppliers on proposals regarding the right of energy companies to appeal in the draft Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill.

BEIS Ministers and officials meet stakeholders to discuss a range of issues.

The draft Bill would place a new duty on Ofgem to implement a cap on standard variable and default tariffs, and energy companies would be able to challenge Ofgem’s decision on the setting of the cap by way of judicial review. The Government believes that a Court is capable of considering these matters.
