I entirely agree, and I hope that that will happen. I think that the term of the current chair of Ofwat, who is a doughty defender of the consumer, is due for a short extension until 2020.

Friend Michael Gove, who has done so much for the environment and, indeed, so much in challenging water companies—will take that point into account.
