Speaking today on the Water Services (Exempt Charges) Bill 2014, Clare stated that the bulldozing through of this charge will wipe out disposable income for many families. The prospect of bills of hundreds of euro will be a blow too far for many.  Access to water is a human right and should be based on need and not ability to pay and that is a right worth fighting for.  Click on the link below to watch:
