§ Mrs. Bridget Prentice
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what monitoring he is conducting of the number of people who have had water supplies disconnected in London; how many households in Lewisham had their water disconnected in 1991–92 and 1992–93; and to what socio-economic categories those people belonged.
§ Mr. Atkins
None. Responsibility for the protection of customers' interests rests with the Director General of Water Services who publishes data on the total number of domestic disconnections twice a year, by water company area. Information on disconnections according to socio-economic categories is not available.
