An influential MP who will be heading an evidence session into power cuts caused by the Christmas flooding has already called efforts to restore power "unacceptable".
Conservative Tim Yeo, who heads the Energy and Climate Change Committee, criticised distributors for leaving thousands of customers without power overnight.
Too many consumers were left without power for too long and without information about when it was going to be restored at a time when people are now really dependent on a continuous supply of electricity.
To be left without power overnight sometimes for more than one or two days - that is simply unacceptable.
