I beg to move amendment 143, in clause 21, page 55, leave out line 26.

The amendment will remove part of the new section 114A that clause 21 would insert into the Water Industry Act 1991, to ensure that land used by an incumbent water company to construct a sustainable drainage system will become subject to the protected land provisions of the 1991 Act. That allows Ofwat to regulate the disposal of land to ensure that the consumer benefits.

Amendment 143 agreed to.

Clause 21, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
