Huhne pledges to 'get tough' with energy companies

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne has said he is determined to "get tough" with the six biggest energy companies, in his speech to the Lib Dem conference.

He said he wanted to help people save money by making it easier to spot cheaper deals and switch providers.

But he denied telling a newspaper that consumers were too lazy to shop around for lower prices.
