We recognise the impact rising energy prices will have on businesses of all sizes and Ofgem and the Government are in regular contact with business groups and suppliers to understand the challenges they face and explore ways to protect businesses.

The Department and I continue to speak regularly with representatives from across the hospitality sector so that we can understand the challenges they face and represent their interests across Government.
