GMB union has called on the government to stop the sale of National Grid’s gas infrastructure.The comment comes a day after foreign bidders submitted preliminary offers for a majority stake in the grid operator’s gas unit.

 

National Grid estimates the deal could be worth up to £11 billion.The union believes National Grid is selling a “key piece of infrastructure, vital to our economy”. Justin Bowden, GMB National Secretary for energy said: ”Theresa May should intervene and put this sale on hold until the review of the Enterprise Act is completed and there are proper safeguards in place.“Just days after the government promised to review the Enterprise Act and introduce some long-overdue checks and balances into the sale of our key assets, yet another example comes down the line of fundamental UK infrastructure being flogged off to the highest foreign bidder.”Earlier this month, Theresa May gave the final go-ahead for the construction of Hinkley Point after reviewing it.National Grid has refused to make any comment.ELN has contacted the BEIS for a response.

What Our Clients Say

Due to the excellent management of my account, over the past 4 years I have rarely had to contact them with any queries or questions. However every time I’ve had to contact The Gas Company my account managers have dealt with my every need with the upmost efficiency and professionalism as well as offering a very personable service

As a residential home owner, I have to manage all areas of my business, which means getting the best possible price and service for our gas and electricity. The Gas Company have provided our energy needs for almost 4 years and have consistently offered very competitive prices, while offering a quick, always available personal service that is refreshing in the industry. Having an assigned account manager that understands how my business runs has allowed me to build an excellent working relationship.

What I’ve always liked about your service, apart from the very good value, is that it is simple and straightforward. Other companies have such complicated tariffs that busy people like me do not have time to deal with them. What is also great is that you get to speak to a real person and it’s the same person every time. It makes dealing with you very easy.   Simple, straightforward, friendly and cheap, you can’t ask for more.
