Consultation on provisional decisions on 3 water merger remedies
30 October 2017: The CMA is consulting on its intention to remove 3 Enterprise Act 2002 (EA02) water merger remedies given before 1 December 2007. The decision document below sets out the CMA’s analysis and provisional decisions. It has also concluded that 2 EA02 water merger remedies have lapsed.
In 2013, Sarah Chambers took part in 2 small consultancy projects as part of a team led by Indepen to advise Northumbrian Water on its business plan, in preparation for its next regulatory review and a similar project for Thames Water. The CMA is satisfied that these matters will not prejudice the ability of the inquiry group to discharge its functions in an independent and impartial manner.
