Customers cannot afford yet another price hike on their water bills – Rebecca Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the announcement that water bills will rise by 2% in April for millions of UK households, said “Customers cannot afford yet another price hike on their water bills.

“Instead of paying out £1.8bn each year to shareholders, water companies should be digging into their deep pockets to remedy years of underinvestment in our leaky Victorian water infrastructure.

“Labour will fix this broken system by bringing the water companies back into public ownership, making substantial savings to customers bills.”
