The article discusses the oral sessions of the members of the parliament regarding the energy market in Great Britain in 2008. Parliamentarians aim to assess whether there is a case for a referral of the market to the Competition Commission. They want to identify the rationale behind the pre-payment meter customers getting a raw deal, the actions taken to counter fuel poverty, and the reason behind the low liquidity in gas and electricity forward markets.
