“A 12.69% increase came into effect on 1 April 2015,” he will explain at the hearing. “If granted, the extra 12.61% claimed would become effective on 1 August 2015 at the earliest.

“If recovered over balance of 2015/16 (i.e. 8 months) the extra 12.61% becomes 12.61 x 12 / 8 = 18.92%.

“Thus, the price increase from 1 August 2015 to 31 March 2016 will be 12.69 + 18.92 = 31.61%.
