There are calls on the government to make sure our water bills' discount is not spent on other schemes.

Ministers are setting aside £35 million for cashback.

But North Cornwall MP Dan Rogerson is worried part of that will be wiped out.

He has been chairing a Commons debate on things like WaterSure.

Dan says, at £517 a year, the average water bill in the south west is still far higher than the rest of the country: "We can look at comparing with the Thames Water figure of three hundred and nineteen pounds, so a two hundred pounds difference. So this fifty pounds therefore, will close that gap a bit but it'll still be considerable."

"The need for people on social tarrifs in the South West Water area, is much higher than in other parts of the country. Just because someone happens to live in the south west, they should not miss out or should not be affected to a greater degree by these social tarrifs than people elsewhere."
