Energy: Metering

Volume 476: debated on Thursday 22 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what consultations his Department has held on policies relating to smart meters over the last five years. (206981)

My Department held consultations on metering and billing in November 2006 and August 2007. We have also undertaken extensive impact assessment work on smart metering, which we've published for informal consultation. We will decide finally on smart metering for domestic consumers and small businesses following the second report from the smart meter trials—due in November.
