Energy cut plea

SIR - Whilst we welcome the news that EDF Energy is lowering gas bills following the decline in the one-year wholesale gas price, the issue remains that it has taken far too long for this reduction to be passed onto consumers.

When wholesale prices increase, energy companies are swift to pass on the cost, but the same speed isn’t seen when prices fall. .

We urge other fuel companies to follow EDF Energy’s lead and ease the financial burden facing thousands of families across the UK, by lowering prices and increasing the support available to vulnerable households.
