HC Deb 24 June 1974 vol 875 c350W
Mr. Roderick

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, as part of his review of the operation of the Water Act 1973, he will consider the desirability of introducing a standard water rate for the whole of the United Kingdom.

Mr. Denis Howell

My right hon. Friends will of course consider any suggestions they receive about water charges, although under existing legislation it would not, I am advised, be possible to require the levy of a uniform national water rate.
