“A RADIATION campaigner is celebrating after plans to force homeowners to install energy smart meters were abandoned.
“Formby resident Eileen O’Connor, director of EM Radiation Research Trust, joined forces with Sefton Central MP Bill Esterson to speak out against the controversial plans over fears about the potential health effects of smart meters.
“Under Government proposals, every household was due to have a smart meter by 2019 as part of a £12billion programme to stop gas and electricity bills being estimated. But now household will get the chance to reject the meters.
“The move is a victory for campaign groups and MPs who raised concerns with ministers that the devices emit electromagnetic radiation.”
