Prime Minister David Cameron said:
"Even in these tough times when we're having to take the difficult decisions needed to fix our economy, we're doing everything we can to help hardworking people and families. That's why I made a personal commitment to help get energy bills down - and I'm delighted that Ofgem are taking that forward. The package announced today is a huge step towards energy bills that are more fair for everyone. This is about putting people before profits. It's about pensioners being better able to heat their homes in winter, and families better able to cope when the bills arrive.
"Our aim is that consumers will get the best possible energy tariff - no tricks, no loopholes - and we will use the powers we gained in the Energy Bill earlier this month to make sure this happens. The bill will support this package, and make sure that all energy customers are put on their supplier's lowest variable rate unless they choose otherwise".
