Answered By: 
The Mayor

My efforts to promote and improve the accessibility of free drinking water have focused on two approaches: Firstly trying to develop a cost-effective model for increasing the number of drinking water fountains in public spaces; and secondly encouraging businesses, mainly cafes, restaurants and bars to provide free water.
