Environment minister Robert Atkins has welcomed the conclusion of the Drinking Water Inspectorate's report that 98.9% of the 3.5 million tests met UK and EC standards.

The DWI Annual Report, published today, shows that a greater percentage of the tests carried out on drinking water during 1993 met the required national standards than in 1992.

Mr Atkins said: 'The report provides a detailed picture of water quality in England and Wales which has been tested against the stringent criteria of the water quality regulations which incorporate the limits in the EC Drinking Water Directive.'
