SF Regional Development Committee member welcomes Independent Review Panel presentation
Speaking following a presentation by the Independent review panel of Water and Sewage to the Regional Development Committee, SF Committee member, Raymond Mc Cartney MLA said,
"I welcome the presentation by this panel and am in no doubt the review will maintain their independence and the report in Autumn 2007 will open up the debate on water services.
"The Minister has previously ruled out privatisation as a means of providing this utility to the public as we have seen the cost of private ownership of water on the public in England and Wales.
"Sinn Féin is committed to scrapping the water charges and I am happy that this review will be wide ranging and can provide alternatives to the water charges imposed by the British Government that has been put off for a year." ENDS
