Sales Techniques Of Electricity Companies

EDM number 533 in 1993-94, proposed by Peter Bottomley on 03/02/1994.

That this House is concerned at the examples in the BBC consumer programme 'Watchdog' on Monday 24th and 31st January of recommendations for high priced home re-wiring that may, in part or in whole, be unnecessary from electricity company sales representatives who are neither electricians nor fully qualified electrical inspectors; invites the Government to review the protection available to consumers; asks if the statutory watchdog OFFER has the power to prevent deception or incompetence or high prices in this field; and calls on each electricity company to ensure that their home wiring inspections are carried out only by trained competent staff, not by incompetent untrained pressure sales people.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
