The Chief Executive of Water Service (Mrs. Katharine Bryan) has been asked to write to the hon. Lady in response to this question.

Letter from Mrs. Katharine Bryan, dated 20 March 2007:

You recently asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland a Parliamentary Question about what estimate he has made of the amount of water lost through leakage in Northern Ireland in each of the last three years for which figures are available (128137). I have been asked to reply as this issue falls within my responsibility as Chief Executive of Water Service.

The estimated level of water lost through leakage in the three years from 2003/04 to 2005/06 is as follows:-

Leakage (megalitres)
2003-04 83,950
2004-05 74,095
2005-06 64,970

The final outturn for March 2007 is not yet available but Water Service is on schedule to achieve its set target of 61,685 Megalitres.
