‘South West Water has officially gone rogue’ – Foord

Richard Foord stood by the sea

Responding to the news that the CEO of South West Water, Susan Davy, has been awarded a £300,000 pay rise – despite the recent poor performance of the company and the Brixham contaminated water scandal – Liberal Democrat candidate for Honiton & Sidmouth Richard Foord said:

“This new bumper pay rise is a slap in the face for billpayers across the South West.

“Our communities are facing higher bills, contaminated water, and raw sewage poisoning our rivers and beaches – all while the top bosses at South West Water are lining their own pockets at our own expense.

“South West Water has officially gone rogue. These wayward firms are totally not fit for purpose and we need urgent action to crack down on their profiteering.

“For too long this Conservative Government has given water companies a free pass by gutting the regulators meant to hold them in check and allowing them to commit environmental vandalism on an industrial scale.

“If you want real action to fix our water industry and crack down on the sewage scandal – then vote Liberal Democrat on 4th July.”
