Energy and Climate Change CommitteeWritten evidence submitted by The Healthy House Ltd (SMR20)

As a company dealing with customers who have allergies, chemical and electrical sensitivity, we are very concerned about the impending widespread installation of Smart meters.

We know how much some people are affected by Wi-Fi, mobile phones, and the general array of electrosmog and feel very strongly that Smart meters should not be allowed to go ahead and invade everyone’s private space. A home should be a haven where you can be safe and healthy and where you have a choice in what products you use.

The electrosensitive are the canaries, the rest of us are the guinea pigs. No one knows what the long term health effects of Smart meters will be and they will add 24 hour exposure to electrostress. At the very least their installation should be a choice and no one should have a Smart meter forced upon them.
