The U.K. government is to hold urgent talks with representatives from the energy industry amid growing concern about a spike in wholesale natural gas prices.
Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng will talk to gas suppliers and others on Saturday to hear how wide-reaching the impact of the surge in prices could be.
High global demand, maintenance issues at some gas sites and lower solar and wind output are blamed for the rise.
The high prices have already led two large UK fertiliser plants to close.
Clark was right, we are in a bit of a pickle.
However we do get Natural Gas from the North Sea, can’t they shift some more or import more from Norway?
Very, very soon the North Sea Link should go live.
