HC Deb 26 July 1990 vol 177 c385W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will introduce a system of interim relief in respect of payments for connection to mains water supplies.

Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

We first announced proposals for the introduction of water and sewerage infrastructure charges in May 1989. Introduction was delayed until 1 April 1990. My right hon. Friend has no plans at present to introduce further transitional arrangements.
