Energy Bills Rebate

Question for Treasury

UIN 133119, tabled on 2 March 2022

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.

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.
