Money: Ofwat – July 23rd 09

Andy Verity and Ian King present this morning’s business stories, including:
Ofwat reveal how much they will let water companies put up their bills over the next five years with some companies asking for as much as 27%.
We also follow up on a story from Monday’s programme about a British Ponzi scam and talk to some of those working on the case.
Finally, with Cadbury’s Dairy Milk bar going Fair Trade yesterday, ethical consumption’s in the spotlight. But does Fair Trade actually help producers in poorer countries or is it just a flash in the pan marketing ploy?
