This article states that Andy White, policy manager at the Consumer Council for Water (CCWater), has raised concerns that the one-month consultation period for the Walker Review into water charging and metering is too short. White said that responding by the December 19, 2008 deadline would be a challenge for themselves and other stakeholders. He explained it would be still harder for other, less policy orientated, organisations starting with a blank page to make considered responses to the consultation's 43 detailed questions.
