Cornish families will get a £50 rebate on water bills for at least four years.

Ministers have committed to it from April 2013 until the next spending review.

But they can not say whether it will carry on after that.

Although it has been broadly welcomed, campaigners say the rebate scheme does not go far enough.

Customers of South West Water have the highest bills in the country and, even after the cash back, the average will still be around £100 higher than elsewhere.
