The article reports that British Gas was the first of the big domestic energy suppliers to make a response to the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets and the government's call for the reduction of the differential between the tariffs paid by customers on prepayment meters and those on other payment schemes. The government has given suppliers until December 1, 2008 to indicate their plan to reduce or remove the differentials paid both by prepay customers and those off the gas network, who are not eligible for dual fuel deals.
