Your Life Choices: Independent MP moves to outlaw fees for paper bills
Draft laws that propose banning companies from charging customers for providing paper bills and statements were introduced into parliament on Monday.
Independent MP Andrew Wilkie introduced the private member’s bill to parliament. The bill will also prevent companies from switching customers to electronic billing without the customer’s consent.
When introducing the bill, Mr Wilkie said that some people simply don’t have the internet, or if they do, it might not be reliable enough to ensure they always get a copy of invoices.
