Commentary on Sections

Section 1: Extension of Subsidy Period

This section amends Article 213(4) of the 2006 Order to extend the “initial period” to 9 years from the coming into force of the 2006 Order. This provides the basis for DRD to continue to make subsidy payments to NI Water until 31 March 2016.
