E.ON energy firm Welsh language law 'price rise'


Utility firm E.ON has warned that its prices may rise in Wales as a result of new Welsh-language legislation.

Under the law, private sector firms providing energy, telecommunications and transport will have to provide a bilingual service.

The warning was included in a leaked letter from E.ON.

The letter was part of its role in the recently-ended consultation on the exact standards the companies will have to meet.
