§ Mr. Gregory
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what the current charges are in respect of water for all types of users in Wales; and if he knows of any plans to increase these.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
The information is as follows:
The Standing Charges levied by the Welsh Water Authority in respect of Water Charges for 1984–85 £ Domestic (unmeasured) 11.50 Metered (industrial, commercial and agricultural sector) Meter Size (mm) up to 22 30.00 28 39.00 35/42 71.00 54 104.00 80 227.00 100 427.00 150 1,002.00 200 and above 1,649.00
The Welsh Water Authority reviews its charges annually, but my right hon. Friend is aware that the authority approved in February 1984 a revision of its tariff structure which will, inter alia, provide for some increase in the fixed element of the unmetered and metered charges, phased over a period of three to five years.
