HC Deb 11 December 1992 vol 215 cc828-9W
Mr. Harvey

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has to impose taxes in respect of private water supplies.

Mr. Maclean

None. We announced, however, in "This Common Inheritance: The Second Year Report" in October that we are preparing a consultation paper on charging for water abstraction: that would need to explain to what extent any proposals would apply to private water supplies.
