UK energy companies to be accountable to Holyrood MSPs in Scottish Parliament

Holyrood MSPs will have more say – and more chance to hold to account – major energy suppliers operating across UK markets – including Scotland – even though they may not be domiciled or registered in Scotland under the new Smith Commission and UK Government’s Draft Scotland Bill.

The UK regulator, OFGEM, will also have to report to the Scottish Parliament.

Coincidentally, Energy UK – the London-based trade association which represents Britain’s Big Six energy suppliers (and many others)  – is today (3 FEB ) holding a seminar in with Holyrood MSPs in the Scottish Parliament, hosted by Conservative  MSP Jackson Carlaw.
