Commissioner queries Manx Gas banding system

An Island commssioner has raised questions about the new price bands in Manx Gas's billing shake-up, due to begin next January.

Increased daily charges for central heating gas have been set in seven different bands - households will shortly find out which one they've been placed in.

Manx Gas says the higher charge will reflect the cost of supply and maintenance of its network. In return, the unit cost for gas will drop.

Onchan commissioner Rob Collister has researched the figures.

He says only greater consumers of gas within each band will use enough to offset the higher standing charge.

Mr Callister is concerned at customers' ability to switch bands.
