Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee - Water Resources (Scotland) Bill

05 Oct 2012

The Scotch Whisky industry takes its environmental responsibilities seriously as we are heavily reliant on having access to a secure supply of high quality water from Scotland's water environment.  We support policies that will ensure that our national water is fit for purpose,
free from pollutants and maintains its reputation for good quality. The SWA is therefore broadly supportive of the Water Resources (Scotland) Bill, however our submission to the Scottish Parliament's Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee requests clarification surrounding certain aspects included within the Bill regarding Water Shortage Orders and Water Abstraction in particular.
