To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many families had their water supply disconnected in each water authority in each of the past five years.

Information on numbers of households disconnected in the area of each Ofwat customer service committee region is set out in the following table. Although each CSC region relates to the area covered by one of the privatised water and sewerage undertakers, each entry in the table includes figures for the water supply companies operating within that area. For 1988–89 only, the numbers are for total disconnections, that is, domestic and non-domestic.
