The author focuses on the proposal for domestic water competition as a key platform of the economic policy of the Conservative Party in Great Britain. The proposal was included in the report of the party's economic policy group and mainly authored by deregulator John Redwood. He notes that Redwood, in his report, seems to believe that additional competition will generate desirable effects. He adds that the report did not tackle the debt issue of the water industry resulting from a ban on domestic disconnection.
