Waterwise Response to BIS Call for Evidence on Principles for Economic Regulation (2011)

  back to resources page

Waterwise is very supportive of the Coalition Government’s commitment to setting out principles for economic regulation across sectors. Many of the challenges – for example of climate change and population growth – are common across sectors, but because the regulatory framework for each sector has developed independently, these regulatory frameworks do not currently work together and on occasion work in conflict. This consultation and the resulting policy offers the opportunity to address such issues more strategically and deliver multiple outcomes more cost-effectively.
