§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if the principle of current cost accounting is to be applied to the Welsh water authority; and if so, how much extra on average the water consumer will have to pay because of the introduction of such a system.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
Yes: current cost accounting will be introduced by the Welsh water authority from 1 April 1981. It is not yet possible to say what the effect will be on the level of the authority's charges.
