HC Deb 24 January 1980 vol 977 cc379-80W
Mr. Porter

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will set up a consumers' consultative body for the water and sewerage industry, on the lines of the bodies which exist in the gas and electricity industries, so that the interests of consumers may be properly represented.

Mr. Fox

The future of nationalised industry consumer bodies is under Council, the Water Companies Association and the North-West water authority, where this issue first arose. I expect to reach a conclusion soon.
