How do I turn off electric at meter?

I am having a sub meter installed in a property (to separate out cost of the hallway lighting and a flat). An electrician has been to the property and told me there is no isolation switch after the meter to turn the power off. He said the meter is a liberty 100 and the manufacturer should have a code to do it. The manufacturer told me there is a code but I need to contact my energy provider. My energy provider has told me it’s a job for an electrician.

I feel I’m running in circles and not sure what to do. So thought I’d reach out here and ask if anyone knows if there is a way to kill the power in order the let the electrician to install a sub meter before the consumer unit but after the meter?

Perhaps the conversation needs to be had between your electrician and your supplier. Can you post a photo from further back?
