Less than one in three pay their water bills
According to a Freedom of Information Request submitted by Paul Murphy TD (Anti-Austerity Alliance), less than one in three of households have paid their water tax.
With a total of 772,660 bills due, only 229,412 had paid by 18 May 2015. It’s a sign of the success of the boycott tactic championed by We Won’t Pay, as well as the wider Right2Water campaign. See the response to Paul Murphy’s FoI request here:
