David Cameron and Chris Huhne urge households to cut their energy bills
Consumers will be encouraged to take steps to reduce their energy bills from Monday amid growing concerns in Whitehall over the sharp increase in prices which has seen the average household pay an extra £300 over the last year.
David Cameron and Chris Huhne will outline the measures after summoning Britain's six biggest suppliers to a special energy summit in London. In a joint article previewing the summit, the energy secretary and the prime minister express their joint determination to see a fall in prices.
"Energy bills have increased by more than £100 for most people since this summer. These price rises couldn't come at a worse time for consumers, who are already feeling the pinch from rising petrol prices and the cost of the weekly shop," Cameron and Huhne write in moneysavingexpert.com.
