WWF-UK comment on the Water Bill announced in the Queen's Speech today.
"WWF-UK welcomed the Government's Water White Paper in 2011 and eagerly anticipated the publication of the draft Bill last year. However the sustainable vision of water management in this country failed to materialize in legislation and we have serious concerns that the Bill, as currently drafted, could make water supply less resilient and decrease the quality of service and affordability for paying customers." - Lucy Lee, freshwater policy manager, WWF-UK
