If price cap becomes the target, rather than the ceiling, it will be customers who pay

Peter Glaze (309), Jillian Comber (188) and Leslie Crowther (159). They were the team when I went to the show with my school in the early 60s. Might Gavin Williamson MP be one of the new presenters? He seems ideal to â€œusher in a new era of â€¦ whizzbang audience anticsâ€� and well suited to CBBC.
â€¢ Boiling more water than needed in the kettle is bad enough (Are your cuppas costing more than you thought?, 9 February), but I am more despondent about people who rinse crockery items with running hot water before placing them in the dishwasher. It washes dishes. The clue is in the name.
