To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has put proposals to the water industry for modifying the areas of appointed water utility companies after privatisation.

Earlier this year the Department sent a discussion document on water utility company functions and areas to the Water Authorities Association and the Water Companies Association. That document is now under consideration between the Department and the industry, and does not represent policy settled in all its details. I am, however, placing a copy of the document in the Library of the House.
