92. Ms Burton asked the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government if he will identify the local authorities in which progress has been made to date in preparing for the metering of non-domestic water supplies; the progress which has been made in each; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Mr. Roche Mr. Roche
Mr. Roche:The Government’s water services pricing policy framework requires the metering of all non-domestic customers by December 2006. The metering of the non-domestic sector is essential to ensure a transparent and equitable process for the full recovery of non-domestic water services costs.
All relevant local authorities have indicated that metering of non-domestic customers will be achieved within the 2006 deadline. In this regard, 13 authorities commenced their meter installation programmes in 2004 with the remaining authorities scheduled to commence installation work in 2005.
