The average household bill for water and sewerage services in Scotland during 2012-13 is around £50 lower than the average in England and Wales, according to latest figures released recently.

The average in Scotland is £324, while the equivalent figure for customers in England and Wales is £376. Scottish Water’s bills are also lower than those of all the ten water and sewerage companies in England and Wales (the next lowest is for customers of Severn Trent Water, at £325).

Alan Sutherland, Chief Executive of the Water Industry Commission for Scotland (WICS) commented:

“We are pleased to see that customers in Scotland will face the lowest level of bills, on average. This real achievement reflects the committed response of Scottish Water’s management to what we believe has been effective economic and environmental regulation, within the public sector, over the past decade.”

Alex Neil, Infrastructure and Capital Investment Secretary, added:

“Achieving the lowest average household bills in Great Britain will be of real benefit to customers in these tough economic times. This news is a fantastic achievement and is a tribute to the efforts of the whole water industry in Scotland. It also underlines the benefits of retaining Scottish Water in the public sector.”
