Motion text

That this House applauds the popular campaign in Bolivia to ensure that the water supply in Cochabamba is returned to public ownership; is concerned that one of the companies that took part in the privatisation, and attempted to raise water prices by 300 per cent. is now demanding $25 million from the people of Bolivia; and believes that Abengoa should end their legal action and respect the democratic wish of Bolivians to continue to own their own natural resources.
