Gavin Shuker, Labour's Shadow Water Minister, responding to the Angus Reid poll in the Sunday Express on public attitudes to the water companies, said:
"The public are rightly concerned by rising water bills and the failure of the government to get a grip with the drought. It is little wonder that people are angry with water bills rising by as much as 11% and hosepipe bans spreading across the country.
"This out of touch Government has delayed its Water Bill and washed its hands of tackling vested interests on the water sector.”
