Press Release   •   Feb 23, 2010 10:42 GMT

“Energy firms should be forced to show how much profit they make on every pound they charge," said the Liberal Democrat Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary.

Commenting on Ofgem figures showing that energy companies are making £105 profit per customer, a 40% increase in the last three months, Simon Hughes said:

“Energy companies clobbered households even as they struggled through the cold snap.

“Cynical price cuts now won’t disguise bumper profits made on the back of grossly unfair fuel bills.

“Energy firms should be forced to show how much profit they make on every pound they charge at the bottom of every fuel bill.”
