asked the Secretary of State for Wales what are the estimated water and sewerage charges as a percentage of the most recently notified average domestic rate for each district authority in Wales.

Water and general service, including sewerage, charges do not form part of the domestic rate. The average water services charge and average domestic rate bill for each district in 1975–76 are shown below. The figures for rate bills are the average amounts paid by domestic ratepayers after the deduction of the domestic element of the rate suppor grant—36p in the £.
