Energy and Climate Change CommitteeWritten evidence submitted by Marion Eaton (SMR54)

Formerly a lawyer, I have been a Complementary Health Practitioner for more than 18 years. My husband has suffered from cancer and I have been debilitated by M E symptoms. These continued for many years until I took measures to eliminate (as far as possible) microwaves in our environment.

I have used several methods to do this and even now, I am able to tell when someone adds a wifi appliance to their house.

Many of my clients have suffered from symptoms that doctors have been unable to explain and these have been relieved considerably by means similar to those I have employed for myself.

I am extremely concerned that the use of Smart Meters will result in an increase in mental and physical illnesses, with the resultant cost to the family, community and the government.
