Energy bills are set to fall for up to 10 million households after Ofgem demanded the Big Six suppliers end "unjustified pricing" for electricity and gas. The regulator said yesterday that the energy industry would have to justify all above-average charges on the basis of their costs, which should lower prices for prepayment and electricity customers.

Q. I bought travel insurance through Moneysupermarket.com. They took my money, but sent only one page of information, providing no contact details, or the name of the underwriters. When I broke my teeth in Croatia, I was refused help as there was an excess of £75 that I had not been told about. I want my premium returned. OK, Manchester.

Should we be doffing our caps with apologies to Arthur Scargill? The miners' union warhorse has been warning for decades that Britain needs a joined-up energy policy and that we are heading for an almighty energy crisis, one which threatens to be as damaging as those in the 1970s.

Q. I am one of many Bradford & Bingley shareholders who have lost out through the company's nationalisation. I received 250 free shares, and when asked to contribute to the rights issue paid nearly £200, only to see it wiped out in the nationalisation two months later. I am unhappy with the behaviour of the directors and auditors responsible for the rights issue. The rights issue was made on the basis that the company was a going concern. But it now seems it was not a going concern at the date of the rights issue. The public does not have the same access to information as the directors and auditors, and we could not make a reasonable judgement on the value of the shares. Do shareholders have a valid claim against the directors and auditors? CM, by email.
