BT Payment Processing Fee

EDM number 625 in 2015-16, proposed by John Mann on 29/10/2015.
Categorised under the topic of Telecommunications.

That this House condemns the additional payment processing fee of £18 per transaction charged by BT to customers who are unable to pay their bill by direct debit; notes that this indirectly impacts on the lowest paid in society who are unable to set up a direct debit and therefore incur this added cost; further notes the dominant market position of BT; and urges them to reconsider the size of the additional payment processing fee.

This motion has been signed by a total of 9 MPs.
