To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whether the removal of appeal rights for energy companies to an independent body, as indicated in the draft Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill, will also apply to National Grid’s RIIO price controls.

Proposals in the draft Domestic Gas and Electricity (Tariff Cap) Bill will only apply to the implementation of a cap on standard variable and default tariffs. Energy companies would be able to challenge Ofgem’s decision on the setting of the cap by way of judicial review. It does not remove an existing right of appeal.
