Sir: The term "windfall tax on the utility companies," to describe a supposedly painless way of raising revenue by a Labour government, is a misnomer. Its name should be the Utility Customer Tax because the companies, to maintain their investment programmes and dividends, will eventually pass on "windfall tax" bills to customers.
