Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Ferris says that ESB price cut should apply to all customers

4 April, 2011 - by Martin Ferris TD


The Sinn Féin Spokesperson for Energy Martin Ferris TD has said that while ESB’s announcement of a price cut for consumers is welcome the cut should also be applied to the bills of those customers currently in arrears.

Deputy Ferris said: “While the cut in electricity prices is certainly to be welcomed, I would also like to see that applied to those 100,000 or so ESB customers currently in arrears.

“That would surely help to cut those arrears and to go a long way to helping those customers to address their financial difficulties.”

The Kerry North/Limerick West TD also stated that he did not believe that An Bord Gáis ought to be granted a price increase given the current pressures on household incomes.
