The Government has confirmed to South West Water that it will continue to provide the £50 annual rebate to customers until at least the end of March 2025.
The £50 subsidy, which was first announced by the Government in 2012, will continue to help those in the South West who have had to pay water bills in excess of the national average for many years.
St Austell and Newquay’s Member of Parliament Steve Double, has been working with government ministers to ensure the rebate continues.
Commenting, Steve said:
“The Government’s £50 rebate to South West Water customers has been something that I have been keen to see continue throughout my time as Member of Parliament, and I am pleased to have worked with colleagues in government to again ensure this is provided for another year. This is very good news for people in Cornwall and I am sure will be especially welcome at this time of rising pressures on household budgets.”
“I will continue to do all I can to work with South West Water to ensure they continue to invest in infrastructure to reduce their impact on our environment in Cornwall and across the South West, as well as making sure they do everything they can to keep water bills as low as possible.”
