Energy tariff deal 'long overdue'

Consumer Focus's director of energy Audrey Gallacher said alerting customers to the best deal was "long overdue".

But she added: "While any move to help energy customers to get the best deal is welcome, it has to be the right method to reach people and the benefit must outweigh the cost.

"This needs to be more than a one-off mail shot and part of a wider strategy to help people overcome the burden of having to navigate hundreds of complex tariffs to get a decent price.

"Unfortunately, people don't trust energy firms and previous mail-outs have not always had the best take-up."
