Limited energy cap to be introduced

Economics Correspondent

A new cap will be imposed on energy bills, at least for some households. The regulator, Ofgem, today said it would introduce the limit for one million vulnerable customers.  But it won’t come in until next February and it’s still a far cry from the cap on all standard variable tariff bills, promised by the Prime Minister last week and potentially benefiting 12 million households.
