Withdrawal of the Standard Variable Tariff
We agree with the Government that Standard Variable Tariffs are a problem for customer engagement because they have no end date. Which is why British Gas is withdrawing its standard variable tariff for new customers by 31st March 2018.
However we don't agree with introducing price controls into a competitive market which will reduce competition and choice, and therefore impact consumers.

We fully recognise that the UK energy market can and should be improved, but further price controls will only set this back.
