West Country gets £50 bill rebates for beach cleaning
Sunday 26 February 2012
Water bill payers in the West Country are to receive £50 a year from the Government under plans to be unveiled this week.
David Cameron says financial help is needed because the region has "paid unfair charges to provide clean beaches for many of us who do not live in the South West".
Thirty per cent of England's coast is within Devon and Cornwall, but the bill is picked up by just 3 per cent of the population.
