Responding to the beginning of consultation on Ofgem’s Retail Market Review proposals, Neil Clitheroe, CEO ScottishPower Retail and Generation, said:
“These are hard-hitting and far-reaching measures that will have an important impact on the way the industry works with customers. The implementation of these measures will be difficult and we will need to study them carefully to understand the full impact.
“We do not think a ban on special offers would be in the interests of consumers. It looks like these proposals may limit but not ban special offers – even this is taking potential risks with competition.”
