Water charges or Taxation masquerading as a service charge?
With all the government U-turns and campaigning by all sorts of interested parties it is easy to overlook the most basic of facts
that is ANY PAYMENT DEMANDED WITHOUT REFERENCE TO CONSUMPTION OF A PRODUCT OR SERVICE IS ABSOLUTELY NOT FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE CONSUMER, THE ENVIRONMENT OR THE FUTURE IMPROVEMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE.
ONLY CONSUMPTION BASED CHARGES ARE OF ANY VALUE TO WATER CONSERVATION
A charge levied on households based on the number of occupants will drastically increase usage because people will want their monies worth!
