ABSTRACT
The article discusses the potential impact of various cross-subsidies on bills, identified by Great Britain's Office of Water Services (Ofwat). A £100 subsidy for pensioners and single parents is deemed the most expensive since it would increase all other bills by £50. On the other hand, only a £1 increase in the bills of people with water bills representing less than 4% of their income is needed to provide a £100 discount for customers whose bills exceed 8% of their income.
