Lahore court bans washing cars with hoses


The Lahore High Court has imposed a ban on washing cars using hosepipes to conserve water.

The court asked on Tuesday the Punjab government to prepare a report on ways to efficiently use water.

Punjab assistant advocate general told the court that the government is drafting a law over water conservation. LHC has summoned irrigation and public health engineering secretaries in the next hearing.
