This is a copy of a letter to Bob Seely, Isle of Wight MP.

Regarding the hosepipe ban, although I realise the need for this, I feel all Southern Water customers should get a rebate on their bills to compensate them for this inconvenience. 

Ideally money allocated as share dividends could be used to do this.

This is as Southern Water wastes more water in their failure to repair leaks than a hosepipe ban would save.

Southern Water is a failing company which is rated as inadequate.

In fact, they are the worst-performing of all the water companies who really need to be placed in special measures due to their continuing poor performance.

Bob, maybe you should consult with your fellow Hampshire MPs on this.
