Energy Bills Rebate

Question for Treasury

UIN 121915, tabled on 9 February 2022

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment his Department has made of the potential merits of enabling households to opt out of the £200 discount on their energy bills.

All domestic electricity customers in Great Britain will receive a £200 reduction in their electricity costs from this October. This will be delivered via energy suppliers and will be clearly identifiable as a line item on electricity bills.

The reduction in costs will help people with the increase in energy bills by spreading the increased costs over a few years, so they are more manageable for households.
