LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is still listening to industry concerns over high energy prices and discussing internally whether any further action is needed, Prime Minister Boris Johnson's spokesman said on Monday.

"We continue to listen carefully to what industry are saying and have talks across government about whether any action is needed to mitigate the challenges that they see," the spokesman said, adding that the government had already provided substantial support.
