UKIP candidate for East Londonderry, Steven Parkhill, is “pleased” at the decision by Northern Ireland water to freeze non-domestic water and sewerage charges.
Mr Parkhill said: “Recently NI Water announced for the up-coming financial year there will no change to non-domestic water and sewerage charges. This announcement is excellent news for local businesses who continue to trade in somewhat volatile economic conditions.
The decision by Northern Ireland water to freeze tariffs for the vast majority of its 80,000 business customers this year is positive news. I welcome any potential measure which can cut and reduce costs for our local businesses and allow them to become more profitable.”
