The Opposition says the state government is setting a precedent by not following up on unpaid water bills.

Water Corporation figures show more than $60 million worth of bills have not been paid, but no summons or infringements have been issued in the 2020-21 financial year.

Shadow Treasurer Steve Thomas told Liam Bartlett allowing house-holders to default with no consequences is bad governance.

“What message does it give to the people of Western Australia, what message does it give to people doing the right thing,” he said.

“It is a terrible precedent that they are setting.”
