6 October, 2007


Speaking after media reports into the findings of the independent review on water charges, Regional Development Committee member and Sinn Féin MLA Raymond Mc Cartney has said that Sinn Féin has been consistent in it's opposition to water charges and is confident that the report shall reflect the views of the Regional Development Committee.


He said,

"Sinn Féin has been consistent in it's opposition to privatisation of water services and in it's opposition to a seperate payment for water services.

"The Regional Development Committee shall meet on Monday and I am confident that the report shall reflect the views of the committee.

"The Minister for Regional Development has already given a commitment not to privatise water services. It appears that now there is an opportunity for an open and transparent solution to this issue." Críoch
