Motion text

That this House welcomes the launch of Look Smart, a campaign by energywatch, the Energy Retail Association and Utility Week; recognises that smart metering would put an end to estimated energy bills, give consumers accurate, understandable and up-to-date information on the energy they are using, remove the additional cost to service pre-payment meters and have a positive impact on fuel poverty and carbon emissions; notes that a national introduction of smart meters has broad support from the energy industry, consumer groups and environmental organisations; and calls on the Government to mandate the introduction of smart metering at the least possible cost to consumers, to fulfil the expectation made in the Energy White Paper that, within the next 10 years, all domestic energy customers will have smart meters.
