WATER SHORTAGE THREAT REQUIRES URGENT MEASURES - BAKER

November 27, 2003 1:08 PM

Norman Baker MP, Liberal Democrat Shadow Environment Secretary, has today called for Government action to ensure sufficient water resources in the medium term.

Mr Baker said:

"Water is increasingly becoming a premium product.

"The Government must urgently take steps to reduce water consumption through efficiency measures. To promote efficient use of water in the domestic and business sector we need a water savings trust, based on the energy saving trust model.

"The Government needs to get a grip on the issue rather than simply leaving matters on auto-pilot."
