The boss of SSE has dismissed claims that his company's price freeze was timed deliberately to come just before a possible inquiry into the energy market.
The energy regulator Ofgem is widely expected to announce a probe into the whole industry, with firms' billing practices set to come under the spotlight.
But Alistair Phillips-Davies told ITV News his firm had been planning to announce a price freeze for "several weeks".
Last September SSE came out against Labour's plans for an energy price freeze, but today the CEO seemed to forget these previous views.
SSE's decision to freeze energy bills is about protecting its shareholders as well as dealing with customers' concerns about rising prices.
