ABSTRACT
The article focuses on new government proposals in Great Britain that will lead to an increase in the number of businesses that could choose their water supplier from April 2010. There is a plan by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to amend secondary legislation to reduce the eligibility threshold for business customers from 50 megalitres a year to five megalitres. Also, the government would later consider reducing the threshold to zero as recommended by a review of water competition.
