Energy firms warned not to be 'part of the problem'

Labour leader Ed Miliband has urged energy companies to work with the party over plans for a price freeze.

Mr Miliband told company bosses: "I appreciate that you will not welcome all aspects of this package."

You and I know that the public have lost faith in this market. There is a crisis of confidence. We face a stark choice. We can work together on the basis of this price freeze to make the market work in the future. Or you can reinforce in the public mind that you are part of the problem not the solution.
