Energy Costs

EDM number 641 in 2017-19, proposed by Drew Hendry on 04/12/2017.
Categorised under the topic of Energy conservation.

That this House notes the variations in costs of energy bills between different regions and nations of the UK, some as large as £139; notes that the network companies responsible for those variations make £6.6 billion in profits, and with profit margins of up to 40 per cent; believes that it is in the interests of consumers to end the practice of charging different prices in different regions and nations; further believes that consumers should instead pay one price for their energy no matter where they live; further notes that the cost to implement the change would be a tenth of network company profits and would see bills cut for the vast majority of consumers; and calls on the Government and Ofgem to make these changes to ensure the postcode lottery in energy is ended at no cost to the taxpayer.

This motion has been signed by a total of 25 MPs.
