§ Mr. Goodlad
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the Southern water authority's announced need for an increase in charges.
§ Mr. Howard
I have nothing to add to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Dorset, North (Mr. Baker) on 1 February at columns213–14. Southern Water will be announcing its own charges for 1989–90 in due course.
