Draft Water Bill sets out plans for water industry reform

The Draft Water Bill has now been published in Parliament heralding market reform, an innovation drive and a cutting of red tape in the UK water industry.

Under the proposals, which have been published for pre-legislative scrutiny, all businesses and public sector bodies in England will be able to switch their water and sewerage suppliers, allowing them to obtain more competitive prices, improve their efficiency and tender for services better suited to meet their individual needs.
