asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish in the Official Report (1) details of the water rates for measured and non-measured supplies in the 1975–76 year for each district in England and Wales and (2) details of any standard surcharges for water service that apply in any water authority area.

The information requested is not available by districts. The table below shows for each water authority the expected average rate for measured and unmeasured water supply in 1975–76. I am not aware of any standard surcharges for water services.
