In deciding to undertake our mid-period review (MPR) we identified areas we would like to look at further. We termed this workstream MPR parallel work. MPR parallel work looks at both the transmission and gas distribution price controls.

We have looked at two outputs where it is unclear how we will hold companies to account. We have decided to focus on consumer outcomes rather than output detail.

We have also identified two areas of the price controls where we think it is in consumers’ interests to make adjustments. First, we will delay the allowances provided to National Grid Electricity Transmission and SP Transmission due to the late delivery of the £1 billion subsea Western HVDC link. Second, we have accepted Cadent’s offer to refund consumers £53.9 million for medium pressure iron mains replacement work that has been delayed.
