Steve Costello, Chairman of the Consumer Council said: “The Consumer Council welcomes the delaying of the draft Order for Water and Sewerage Services in this Parliamentary session to await the outcome of our judicial review. The Department for Regional Development told the High Court that the timetable for the passing of the draft Order for Water and Sewerage Services here was “immutable”. We are pleased to learn that this now appears not to be the case.
Consumers can claim a major victory today as the Competition Commission confirmed that the personal current account market here is anti-competitive, anti-consumer and it that it is going to take steps to sort it out.

Steve Costello, Chairman at the Consumer Council said: “Water charging affects every home and business in Northern Ireland. The Consumer Council believes that the consultation process relating to the draft Water and Sewerage (NI) Order 2006 is flawed and that is why we sought leave for a Judicial Review on behalf of all consumers here.
