The Government has decided that Smart Meters will be optional & are playing with
the idea of charging for opt outs. There still seems to be a lot of wavering
going on as they are dealing with several different pretty determined power
suppliers who are in a rush to get on with it.

In the small print of Government info, they state that while you have the option
not to have an SM installed, should you move to a property which has an SM you
cannot have it removed, thus enforcing them by stealth. This would have
to be tested in the courts for those made ill by SM's.

British Gas have been writing to customers telling them that the Smart Meters
are mandatory. THEY ARE NOT MANDATORY.

A formal complaint concerning this has been lodged with OFGEM

For those who would like more information see The Select Committee report (Health Section):

They have already been slapped down once by the Regulator.
