"What we really need are fair fuel bills that are easy to understand," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary.

Commenting on British Gas’ decision to cut gas bills by an average of 7%, Simon Hughes said:

“A price cut from one supplier in February is no substitute for fair fuel bills all the year round.

“It is unfair that customers were forced to shiver through the recent cold snap.

“Energy companies have been taking advantage of their customers for too long. What we really need are fair fuel bills that are easy to understand.”
