LONDON – Britain is having talks with energy regulator Ofgem about whether a cap on gas and electricity prices for consumers may have to go up, junior business minister Paul Scully said on Thursday.

“We’ve had lots of conversations … with companies themselves, with Ofgem, in reviewing that price cap we clearly want to protect customers,” he told Sky News.
