Energy suppliers to release meeting details
The UK's leading energy suppliers are set to release minutes from their meetings in order to end claims that they discussed recent energy price increases.
According to reports, the Energy Retail Association (ERA), which includes all of Britain's leading gas and electricity providers, is to disclose minutes of its bi-monthly discussions to energy regulator Ofgem.
The body released a statement to The Times, in which it stated that it has never discussed pricing or product strategies of its individual companies.
It also remarked that it had "no knowledge of any price changes introduced by any of its members before they are announced to the public."
