This article focuses on the policy statement issued by the Welsh Assembly Government expressing its skepticism of the benefits of water competition and metering. It proposes using a not-for-profit model of Welsh Water as an alternative way to deliver value for customers in England, as well as Wales. It points out that the need to move toward compulsory metering or urging accelerated uptake of metering is not appropriate with regards to water resources management.
