MICAL MP V Alfred Gray charged that estimates used to calculate electricity bills at the Bahamas Electricity Corporation were unfair and detrimental to the less fortunate.

Mr Gray called on BEC to conduct meter-readings instead of estimates, which he felt did not accurately represent electricity use.
