The Consumer Council welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Utility Regulator (UR) Backbilling in the NI Retail Energy Market Call for Evidence (CfE).

The Consumer Council welcomes the opportunity to respond to this consultation. We are supportive of the development of the Department of Education’s Children and Young People’s Strategy and have welcomed the chance to contribute in the early consultation stages.
The Consumer Council is pleased to be able to offer comments on Citizens Advice draft consumer work plan 2017/18. We believe the draft consumer work plan demonstrates a comprehensive approach with exceptional clarity of purpose.
