A COSLA survey on the future of the water services in Scotland has been slammed as a fraud by Conservative Sir Michael Hirst, the Scotsman reports (p5).

Sir Michael, chairman of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist party, said the poll - which claimed 95% of respondents believed water and sewerage services should be left alone - was a 'political deceit'.
