But critics question what the inquiry, to be

Representing the United States of America, Justin Gatlin.

The Government has launched an independent review

:01:24.:01:27.

of the cost of energy, days after British Gas raised

:01:28.:01:38.

The Prime Minister had pledged to cap energy prices

:01:39.:01:42.

her Conservative majority. but shelved the plans after losing

:01:43.:01:45.

to climate change targets. and the UK's commitment

:01:46.:01:49.

It'll be completed by the end of October.

:01:50.:01:51.

Here's our Business Correspondent Joe Lynam.

:01:52.:01:52.

always ignites our passions. to run our households and companies

:01:53.:01:58.

Policies like capping energy prices to support working families.

:01:59.:02:02.

That's why Theresa May promised a price cap and an independent probe

:02:03.:02:05.

into the energy sector before the general election.

:02:06.:02:09.

The cap may have been shelved but this Oxford University

:02:10.:02:12.

professor, Dieter Helm, has only three months to find out

:02:13.:02:14.

where any fat can be trimmed from our energy bills.

:02:15.:02:18.

about pricing and costs. all the facts from the myths

:02:19.:02:23.

This review will look at all the costs that make up your bill.

:02:24.:02:26.

on wholesale markets. buying gas and electricity

:02:27.:02:30.

That accounts for 36% of a typical bill.

:02:31.:02:33.

accounts for 29%. known as distribution,

:02:34.:02:38.

But 13% of our bill includes subsidies for poorer households,

:02:39.:02:42.

and the cost of developing renewable - or green - energy supplies.

:02:43.:02:47.

The rest is made up by operational costs and VAT.

:02:48.:02:51.

And, for some households, it's not clear whether this review

:02:52.:02:53.

will be the green light for lower bills.

:02:54.:02:56.

It's a slow process. I'm paying a lot of money.

:02:57.:03:05.

Like, it can't just happen at the click of a finger.

:03:06.:03:08.

It's a case of they have to go away, review it, and come back.

:03:09.:03:14.

If they have promised a price cap, obviously they should deliver on it.

:03:15.:03:17.

Tom Brook used to advise Labour and Conservative governments.

:03:18.:03:20.

He says there's not much that Dieter Helm can do in three months.

:03:21.:03:23.

I think a review this short is essentially headline management.

:03:24.:03:25.

I don't think Dieter, heroic though he is,

:03:26.:03:27.

is going to be ale to come up with something that isn't

:03:28.:03:30.

already widely discussed inside the energy community.

:03:31.:03:32.

Where we know that the quickest and cheapest way to drive bills down

:03:33.:03:40.

is to improve the efficiency of our buildings.

:03:41.:03:42.

After British Gas said it would be raising its standard electricity

:03:43.:03:47.

prices by 12.5% - this energy probe would allow the Government

:03:48.:03:50.

to say it's not tone deaf in the face of rising prices.

:03:51.:03:53.

Consumers obviously want lower Vicki Young is here.

:03:54.:04:00.

Consumers obviously want lower prices. Is that the point of this

:04:01.:04:07.

review question is that what is likely to happen? Theresa May has

:04:08.:04:10.

talked about helping the just about managing. Cheering the election

:04:11.:04:15.

campaign the Conservatives promised something pretty bold, a price cap.

:04:16.:04:21.

That is off the agenda because some conservatives do not like the idea

:04:22.:04:24.

of intervening in the market even though customers feel the market is

:04:25.:04:28.

not working for them. The bit that has survived is the wide review of

:04:29.:04:33.

the industry. It is an independent review, always worth looking at the

:04:34.:04:37.

person in charge of it. Deta Hedman has taken against green subsidies.

:04:38.:04:41.

He does believe that solar and wind power have all role to play back he

:04:42.:04:47.

feels they are too expensive. If you're looking at immediate action

:04:48.:04:51.

on bringing the bill down, ministers say they are urging Ofgem to use

:04:52.:04:55.

powers it already has two protect those particularly on the lowest

:04:56.:04:58.

incomes. The advice remains the same does that if you want to bring the

:04:59.:05:03.

bills down immediately, the best advice is to switch.

:05:04.:05:05.

The American sprinter Justin Gatlin, who won the 100m

:05:06.:05:07.

at the World Athletics Championships in London, was given a mixed

:05:08.:05:10.

reception this evening by the crowd, on receiving his gold medal.

This is unfortunate in the current debate at the moment,

:06:33.:06:35.

and it is unfortunate mainly because he was a two-time offender.

:06:36.:06:40.

In many ways I wish it had not happened but it has,

and we have to abide by the rules of the game.

He may have even saved his sport. when Boltnarrowly beat Gatlin.

But two years on, Gatlin has become one of the sport's most

And that is the point. have been saying for 15, 20 years.

:07:23.:07:28.

The shadow cast by cheating extends well beyond Gatlin.

World champion hurdler Sergey Shubenkov is one of just 19

because the country is banned for state-sponsored doping.

:07:39.:07:44.

But it is Gatlin who is athletics' pantomime villain and the sport's

:07:45.:07:47.

It is not the perfect script. it is a result he could do without.

:07:48.:07:53.

I am hardly going to sit here and tell you I am eulogistic

:07:54.:07:56.

that somebody who has served two bans in our sport would walk off
