Mary Creagh: Drought is bad news for the 20m water customers affected

Mary Creagh MP, Labour's Shadoe Environment Secretary, commenting on the news that water companies across southern and eastern England are to introduce hosepipe bans, said:

"This drought is bad news for the 20 million water customers affected, whose bills have gone up by 6% this year, and who now face a hosepipe ban, and possible water supply cuts this summer.  Fruit and vegetable prices will rise, wildlife will suffer and in a worse case scenario we could see the construction and energy industries affected.

"The Environment Secretary has held 3 drought summits but seems reluctant to get a grip. She should back Labour’s proposals for new laws to help people struggling to pay their bills and stop people taking water from rivers that are running dry."
