HC Deb 13 June 1980 vol 986 c346W
Mr. Renton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will revise, as far as water services charges are concerned, the system of equalisation which results in areas with higher rateable values being severely penalised.

Mr. Fox

Equalisation of charges within water authority areas is a matter for each water authority to decide within the limits of existing legislation. We have no proposals to change the law.
