    UK employers slam $249 bln cost of Labour renationalisation plans

    A British employers' group criticised on Monday what it said would be the "beyond eye-watering" cost of the opposition Labour Party's plans to return utilities, train companies and the Royal Mail to public ownership. The Labour Party has moved sharply to the left under its leader Jeremy Corbyn, and although it lags the ruling Conservatives in opinion polls, Brexit turmoil and the likelihood of an early election could see it take power. The Confederation of British Industry said Labour's plans would have an upfront cost of 196 billion pounds ($249 billion), assuming Labour paid the full market value of companies involved - similar to a 176 billion-pound estimate made last year by the pro-privatisation Centre for Policy Studies think tank.

    UPDATE 2-FTSE 100 snatches gains at the end of its worst week in a year

    A sharp recovery in London's FTSE 100 led by oil majors BP and Shell on Friday was not enough to stop the index from recording its worst weekly performance in nearly a year amid fears of an economic slowdown and risk of recession. The UK-oriented FTSE 250 climbed 0.7%, led by gains in power generator Drax after sources told Reuters the European Commission was set to approve Britain's roughly one billion pound power backup plan.

    UK big six energy firms' 2018 supply profits sank as customers turned to smaller rivals

    Profits from supplying gas and electricity at Britain’s big six energy firms sank by a combined 35 percent last year as they continued to lose customers to smaller rivals, a report by energy market regulator Ofgem said on Thursday. Britain’s so-called 'Big Six' energy suppliers - Centrica's British Gas, E.ON, SSE, EDF's EDF Energy, Innogy's npower and Iberdrola's Scottish Power - have faced competition from more than 60 smaller firms, often offering cheaper prices. In its annual state of the market report, Ofgem said the six companies had lost around 1.3 million customers and they served just above 70% of domestic customers as of June this year, down from around 75% in June last year.

    UPDATE 1-UK utility SSE first-half profits hit by capacity payments delay

    Utility SSE Plc said on Thursday the contribution from its first-half profits to annual results would be significantly lower than previously expected after payments under Britain's back-up power scheme were delayed. A European Union court ruling last year forced Britain to halt payments under its capacity market scheme, which pays generators to be available during periods of high demand, pending a review by the European Commission. SSE, one of Britain's so-called Big Six energy firms, said the continuing suspension of the payments meant the company was unable to recognise pending payments totalling 148 million pounds.
