Response to Defra consultation on Strategic Policy Statement

Water UK has responded to Defra’s consultation on the draft Strategic Policy Statement and directions to Ofwat.

We support the new framework set out by Defra in the Strategic Policy Statement, and the aim of providing clear and unambiguous direction to Ofwat, so that Ofwat can carry out its role of independent economic regulator with confidence that it is acting within a clear policy framework set by government.
