Quality of water intended for human consumption (debate)
MPphoto
 

  Lynn Boylan (GUE/NGL), blue-card answer. – No, we accept that the way Member States manage their water infrastructure is a competence for the Member States, and in fact in Ireland we have huge issues with the Commission interfering in how the Irish actually manage their water system, because in Ireland we have zero water poverty. And do you know why we have zero water poverty? Because we pay for our water through general taxation instead of punitively punishing citizens who can’t afford to pay their water taxes. So no, we don’t want it to go out to public tender. We don’t want liberalisation of water infrastructure.
