Re: Consumer benefits?

Sounds sensible. And by the way, isn't that the all-knowing, all-regulating market in action? Why would government want to spend so many billions of pounds overriding the action of the market?

Incidentally, even the projected cost - let alone the actual cost - of smart meters would be enough to give the NHS all the money it is crying out for, and more. Wouldn't it make sense to spend the money on necessities, rather than fanciful schemes to enrich manufacturers and suppliers at the cost of taxpayer/consumers?
