Refunding the water charges


Sir, – In paying all or most of their domestic water charges, homeowners showed a sterling level of civic awareness. I hope they will exercise similar magnanimity when it comes to deciding what they do with the refunds. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – You have published several letters suggesting that water charges refunds could be diverted to worthy causes such as a social housing bond (September 8th). I will happily waive my refund when I am assured that those who claimed to be able to afford water charges but refused to pay them will also be contributing to such a bond. – Yours, etc,

A chara, – Who will be the first person to burn their water charges refund cheque live on social media in protest at getting their money back? – Is mise,
