My office has had a complaint regarding the miss-selling by electricity suppliers in the Wyndford. My constituent was informed that they must switch from Scottish Power to a new supplier for their electricity. THIS IS NOT TRUE.

SCOTTISH POWER HAVE CONFIRMED THIS AND THE BOGUS SALES PERSON HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM.

I have not named the other supplier that the miss-selling is apparently on behalf of. They have pledged to investigate. They will halt door step sales in the Wyndford in the meantime. I have asked that they do so across the entire constituency. We need to know if this was one bad apple or a miss-selling culture.

Please contact my office if you have experienced likewise and of course ofgem and the Police.

I stated that the clear priority for all is to support those on low incomes who may not be able to access products themselves. This goal is shared by many across Parliament.
