To ask the Minister for Regional Development, to detail the number of water bills issued in 2012 that were subject to an appeal, and how many resulted in a reduced bill.

I have been advised by Northern Ireland Water that 166,000 bills were issued to around 80,000 non-domestic customers during 2012. Of these customers, 14% queried their bills and as a consequence 2% of customers received a reduction.
