Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said:
“Investment in renewing inefficient and outdated infrastructure is obviously needed, but not at any cost. Consumers are still reeling from the recent round of price hikes and many are yet to see any benefit from the multi-billion pound initiatives for which they foot the bill.
“The Government must demonstrate that they are protecting the interests of consumers by keeping a tight rein on these costs, and ensuring full transparency and value for money.
“We want the National Audit Office to be given responsibility for an ongoing review of all energy policy costs, and for the Chancellor to stand up for hard-pressed consumers by cutting costs down to size in his Autumn Statement.”
