Various Ministers and Government departments expressed concerns over the price rises, citing unfairness on customers and defending government policy. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) said: “Energy firms should treat all their customers fairly and we’re concerned the price rise will hit many people already on poor-value tariffs.”
Regardless of the reasons behind the change, millions of people across the UK will be affected by the rise in energy prices.
