HC Deb 21 July 1980 vol 989 cc110-1W
Mr. Concannon

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has any proposals to seek to restrict the increases in water service charges in 1981 to those accounted for by the rise in the general level of inflation in the costs of providing water services.

Mr. Fox

No, but we have impressed upon chairmen of water authorities the need to make economies wherever possible.
