Energy regulator Ofgem plans to cap the number of tariffs suppliers can offer to four per fuel, in a bid to simplify the market.

One potential negative is that prices for the cheapest deals could rise, as suppliers won’t be able to offer expensive standard tariffs. These are often £250 a year more than online deals, so they’ll need to make up the difference from somewhere.

Which is closest to your view on how the market should look?
