The article reports on the proposals of British Gas to change the way stolen and lost gas is paid for by the industry. The proposed changes to the sector's reconciliation by difference regime are backed by the six domestic suppliers, but opposed by specialist industrial and commercial suppliers. They fear the arrangements would increase customer bills and could lead to the demise of many specialist gas suppliers. Under the proposals, the industrial and commercial market would be liable for around 25 per cent of the cost of the missing gas.
