Lessons can be learned from NIW inquiry

Published 07/01/2011

I AM tired of reading informed and uniformed opinion regarding the Northern Ireland water crisis.

It is to be hoped that an inquiry will be wholly independent, urgently addressing the disruption to our water supplies.

The matters to be examined should include funding (and underfunding) over several decades, future funding, emergency action taken (or not taken) by NI Water, business and statutory organisations, private householders and other major water users. The availability of information, and its dissemination to those who needed it, should also be covered.

I despair of our politicians who seem incapable of constructive government.

Let us all await the report of the independent inquiry and take action on the lessons from it.
