The Consumer Council expressed dismay at the revelation that Northern Ireland Water has made basic business miscalculations that could lead to domestic water bills soaring by up to an extra £20 million this year. Consumers must not pick up the cost of Northern Ireland Water getting their figures wrong. Northern Ireland Water must be held accountable for this sheer incompetence and come clean with all their figures to explain fully what went wrong here.
The Consumer Council has welcomed the final Order placed today on our local banks by the Competition Commission as a victory for fair personal banking and consumer power here. Following the most comprehensive investigation of the £2.1 billion personal current account (PCA) market, the legally-binding rules of the game have finally been outlined which all banks here must follow or face court action by the Office of Fair Trading.
