I do not have a function with regard to the pricing of electricity. The Commission for Energy Regulation was given the statutory responsibility for regulating the ESB's tariffs to its franchise customers under the European Communities (Internal Market in Electricity) Regulations 2000. I have asked the Commission for Energy Regulation to communicate directly with the Deputy on the information sought.
