Liz takes on energy giant in row over unfair gas meter charges
High energy bills are already a huge concern for my constituents, which is why I have been campaigning for Labour’s energy price freeze.
But I recently came across a particularly appalling case when Susan Holmes from New Parks contacted me. The energy company e.on were charging Susan for a gas meter which she had never used and couldn’t use because her flat only has electricity.
I took the matter up with e.on’s Chief Executive and the company agreed to write off the charges and to remove the metre. You can read coverage in the Mercury here.
I’m now writing to residents in the six major blocks of flats off Aikman Avenue, to raise awareness of the issue and to try and assist anyone else in a similar situation. Please get in touch it you’ve been effected.
