This is the UK ministerial department with policy responsibility for competition law, and consumer law, UK compliance with the European Union State aid rules, and the energy industries.

The website (now was reorganised in May 2006. Most links were broken as a result of the reorganisation. The new site (which has not significantly changed with the change of name) does not make it easy to find the new URLs.
