Ed Miliband calls for new Ofgen powers to reduce energy bills

The energy regulator Ofgem should be given new powers to force firms to cut gas and electricity bills, to reflect falls in wholesale energy prices, Ed Miliband has said.

The Labour leader told the BBC's Andrew Marr he would demand fast-track legislation on energy in a Commons debate next week.

Ofgem currently does not have the power to force a reduction in prices.
