Examination of Witnesses (Questions 120
WEDNESDAY 28 FEBRUARY 2001
120. I think that would be a useful thing for
us to have a note on, even if you need to go to the companies
to get that information because it is something that is significant.
Thank you. Just one last clarification question. We got two answers
to the question as to whether the telephone number of energywatch
was on bills, one said yes and one said no. What is the case?
(Mr Reid) I was not aware that I expressed a view
on that. It is on the bills. The number is 0800 887777 and it
is available here and now.
121. The indication we got to Mr Davies was
that it was not and to Mr Davidson that it was.
(Mr McCarthy) The answer, Chairman, is that the number
which has transferred from Ofgem to energywatch is on the bills.
Some of the bills, because they preceded the transfer from Ofgem
to energywatch, still refer to it as an Ofgem number, others have
made the transfer to energywatch and in time that number will
be associated on all bills with energywatch.
122. It is the same number?
(Mr McCarthy) Yes.
Chairman: That is very helpful. It just remains
for me to say thank you very much for coming, gentlemen, it has
been a very interesting session. Thank you.
6 Note by Witness: The numbers are 0645 906
0708 for gas and 0845 601 3131 for electricity. These numbers
may be changed by energywatch in the future. Back
