The Competition Commission (CC) has published its second order following its report in June 2006 on the supply of bulk liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for domestic use. The report identified a number of features of the UK market which were having an adverse affect on competition and therefore proposed a series of remedies. This week the CC published their second order. The first order was issued in 2008 and covered the supply of bulk LPG for domestic use; it did not cover “metered estates” which is the focus of the new order. The new order will affect customers who are supplied using tanks or pipework which supply more than a single customer and when their individual consumption is measured by meter.
