Abstract: As Ireland embarks on a programme of privatisation and liberalisation of markets, it may be informative to reflect on the experiences of the UK on competition, privatisation and regulatory issues in the utilities sector over the last two decades. The regulation of privatised utilities in Britain is widely criticised today. The criticism comes from many quarters. Customers resent their money being handed out in excessive salaries and dividends. Academics are now widely critical of the RPI-x formula for capping prices below the retail price index (RPI), which was once a proud British innovation. A curious alliance of politicians and senior industry executives is concerned to suggest that the regulatory process is insufficiently accountable.
