Like 25,000 every winter according to our government, I see no reason for them to lie on this subject.
Not charging different prices for pre-payment customers (what we would call Direct debit in the Uk) and those who pay by cash and cheque, as most of the poorest member of society can't afford to pay automatically by credit card.
There should be mandatory 'social tariffs' that ensure the poorest households get the cheapest energy rates from energy suppliers.
Making it illegal for energy suppliers to cut off energy, at present it is technically illegal to force them to do so as it would break competition rules. To my knowledge companies can agree to do it individually, but the can't agree with each other to do so or be forced to do so by the government. I could not care less about competition rules to be honest; this is real life we are talking about, not some board game of monopoly after all. In fact, some companies do have 'safety net' policies like that to make sure vulnerable customers are not disconnected; sadly they seem to be the minority.
