To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 25 February 2022 to Question 127250 on Energy Bills Rebate, what mechanism his Department will introduce to recoup the £200 energy bill reduction for people with pre-payment meters.
7 March 2022
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) will work closely with industry and consumer groups to ensure pre-payment customers receive the £200 reduction from October in a way that is convenient for them. BEIS will consider how best to recoup the reduction from customer bills, including for pre-payment meter customers.
This will be done through a public consultation in the spring.
