David Cameron was in still in hot water over energy prices today as Ed Miliband promised to force a Commons vote to cut costs for the elderly.
The PM said on Wednesday that the new Energy Bill would force firms to offer customers their lowest tariffs.
But ministers have since ducked questions about it.
Watchdog Ofgem said today that companies would just have to tell customers about the lowest charges.
Mr Miliband said Ofgem wasn't "up to the task" and should be scrapped.
He plans to use next Wednesday's Opposition Day debate to give MPs the chance to back "real action" by automatically putting over-75s on the cheapest rates.
The Labour leader claimed the Mr Cameron's plans would lead to across-the-board price rises and claimed that his party would break up the "big six" energy suppliers.
