Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill, continued

 
 

Secretary Greg Clark

 

To move the following Amendment to the Bill in lieu of the Lords Amendment:—

 

(a)

 

Parliamentary Star    

Page  5,  line  38,  at end insert the following new Clause—

 

         

“Protection for domestic customers after termination of tariff cap conditions

 

(1)    

Before the tariff cap conditions have ceased to have effect as provided by section

 

8, and afterwards at such intervals as the Authority considers appropriate, the

 

Authority must carry out a review into—

 

(a)    

the pricing practices of holders of supply licences for the supply of gas

 

and electricity under domestic supply contracts, and

 

(b)    

whether there are categories of domestic customers paying, or who may

 

in the future pay, standard variable and default rates for whom protection

 

against excessive charges should be provided.

 

(2)    

Such a review must, among other things, consider—

 

(a)    

whether there are domestic customers who the Authority considers will

 

suffer an excessive tariff differential where on the termination of fixed

 

rates the customers move to standard variable or default rates, and

 

(b)    

whether customers who appear to the Authority to be vulnerable by

 

reason of their financial or other circumstances are in need of protection.

 

(3)    

If the review concludes that protection should be provided, the Authority must

 

take such steps as it considers appropriate by the exercise of its functions under

 

the Gas Act 1986 and the Electricity Act 1989.”
