OFT Report into Remote Communities

Just received the OFT report and have posted it below:

It is interesting that it:
- confirms many of the things we have been saying about the lack of competition and availability of services
- shows that Northumberland is leading the way in providing solutions eg by the multiple oil buying groups, or the self service unmanned petrol station in Kielder
Will sit down this weekend and have a proper read. I have a meeting scheduled next week with Charles Hendry, the Energy Minister, in Westminster, so I will be pointing this out to him for sure.
Many thanks to all who took part and made submissions.
