Listen: Kildare TD Says Referendum On Water Ownership Would Be "Madness".

: 03/08/2017 - 12:50

A Kildare TD and member of the  Oireachtas Committee on the Future Funding of Water, says a referendum on the ownership of water would be "madness"

The committee convenes again this afternoon, to try to resolve an impasse over whether some form of charge needs to exist, in order to comply with EU rules.

Reports suggest a warning system for water wasters could be the solution.

Kildare South Fine Gael TD, Martin Heydon, is a member of the body.

Speaking to Kildare Today, he says he has concerns about a referendum on public ownership.
