The experience of those on #PrePayment meters in #Newcastle is atrocious.@ofgem's announcement banning pre payment meters being installed for those over 85 years old does nothing for people below that age.
I asked the SoS why he isn't protecting vulnerable people of all ages. pic.twitter.com/chBFeEXhUI

The experience of my constituents who are on prepayment meters is atrocious, and today’s announcement from Ofgem will do absolutely nothing to protect vulnerable groups such as those with Alzheimer’s, the under-fives and those who are over 75 but under 85. Will the Secretary of State answer the question he did not answer earlier, and say why he is not protecting the vulnerable from prepayment meters and the lack of energy support?
