Oireachtas committee split on prosecutions for wasting water

The Oireachtas committee on water charges is divided on plans to prosecùte hoùseholders who waste water. The draft report for committee members proposes that existing legislation shoùld be amended to allow for homeowners to be taken to coùrt and sanctions to be imposed thereafter.
Fianna Fáil and Solidarity are supporting the proposal, but it is being resisted strongly by Fine Gael, Labour and Sinn Féin.
