To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 25 February 2022 to Question 126560 on Energy Bills Rebate, whether his Department plans to (a) put a lump sum of £200 on the meters of people that use pre-payment meters or (b) use the tariffs set by energy companies to do that.
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.
