Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation with responsibility for Water and Housing, Daryl Vaz, says the Office of Utilities Regulations, OUR, should be audited.

He made the call after expressing outrage at a revelation that the Water Commission like the Jamaica Public Service Company, JPS, share with paying customers, the cost of losses incurred due to theft.

Both are empowered by the OUR to do this.

Minister Vaz notes that there’s been public criticisms of the OUR.

In the meantime, he says since he’s been appointed Minister he’s learned that there’s been unprecedented investment in the NWC recently.
