28 Feb 2024

EMBARGO: Immediate Release

Responding to the Financial Times front page story on Thames Water, Liberal Democrat Treasury Spokesperson and MP for Richmond Park Sarah Olney said:

'This week the government told me they won't make their contingency plan in the event of Thames Water’s collapse public. 

"This is a cover up. 

"Customers and taxpayers deserve to know what Ministers plan to do if this disastrous situation happens."
