“we could pay up to a maximum of £3m..”

Northern Ireland Water have revealed that it will cost up to £3million to alter the £70million seven-year contract with the Xansa-led Crystal Alliance consortium for the provision of a customer billing and collections system for water charges – previously noted here. It was part of the recommendations of the 2007 review of water and sewerage services. It’s a small price to pay to allow the semi-detached polit-bureau to claim that they haven’t introduced an additional water charge – since it’ll just be itemised on the rates bills instead.. When they eventually get around to introducing increasing that bill..
