End of Manx Gas Banding Standing Charges

This petition had 1,577 supporters

Manx Gas Banding Standing Charges are unfair, confusing, and for many simply not affordable. In some cases fuel benefit granted for the financially worse off in Manx society are been used up on standing charges and not on actual gas as the standing charge literally wipes out the benefit. 

We the undersigned demand our democratically elected leaders to discuss in detail Banding Standing Charges and hopefully join together to bring an immediate end to this system which forces some customers to pay over £600 per year in standing charges whereby neighbours in some cases pay less than a quarter of that. 

We the undersigned wish to have a choice of tariffs. Whilst we appreciate there is only one gas supplier it is unacceptable to force its customers onto a single tariff which many do not understand or can't afford.

I appreciate there has been a similar petition to this one but as I understand it was never handed in to Tynwald. This one will be when it achieves a high number of signatures.
