On 18 February the CMA published an updated issues statement setting out progress on the energy market investigation. The updated issues statement summarises the investigation group’s initial thinking based on the evidence it has received, and the analysis it has carried out, so far. It updates the theories of harm outlined in the initial issues statement published in July 20134 and highlights those issues likely to represent the focus of the investigation in the period up to publication of the provisional findings, which the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) expects to publish in May. This document is the response from Edward Davey, DECC’s Secretary of State to Roger Whitcomb, the CMA Investigation Panel Chair.
