General Scheme of the Water Services Separation Bill 2021: Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage
Obviously, our discussion has strayed a bit into the completion of the single utility, which is a separate issue. Is the general scheme required to complete the single utility or could Irish Water have remained in Ervia and the single utility could have taken place in terms of the early ending of the service-level agreement with the local authorities? Are these two slightly separate things related but not necessarily interdependent?
