The poor pay more parliamentary briefing

calendar08 December 2015

Following the launch of The poor pay more, CAP held a briefing in parliament to raise awareness of the report’s findings and recommendations amongst MPs and other key stakeholders. The briefing was hosted by Fiona Bruce MP and attended by over 40 people, including 15 MPs and representatives from Ofgem, the Big Six energy suppliers and the Energy Ombudsman. Guest speakers from Citizens Advice and Money Advice Scotland spoke in support of our findings and several MPs praised the work CAP is doing in their constituency. One MP commented that it was the best attend event of its type he had ever seen and several were interested in discussing further a fairer deal for prepayment meter users.
