Environment Secretary Thérèse Coffey has reappointed Robert Wilson to the board of the Consumer Council for Water (CCW).
Robert’s first term as a board member for the CCW – the independent, statutory body that represents all water and sewerage consumers across England and Wales – ended on 30 June 2022 and was subsequently extended until 30 December 2023. His second term will run until 30 December 2026.
Defra say the reappointment has been made in accordance with the Ministerial Governance Code on Public Appointments, and that all appointments are made on merit and political activity plays no part in the selection process.
The Consumer Council for Water provides advice and information on water matters and investigates complaints if customers have tried and failed to resolve issues with their water company or retailer.
