Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: River Thames (Cleanliness) (11 Dec 2014)

Dan Rogerson: We are making good progress on cleaning up the River Thames, particularly in tackling the increasing raw sewage overflows into its tidal stretches. Thames Water will reduce overflows when the Lee tunnel becomes operational in 2015 and through upgrades to major sewage works across London. Once operational in 2023, the Thames tideway tunnel will capture almost all the remaining sewage overflows...

EU: UK Membership — Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2014)

Lord Smith of Finsbury: ...lost without them. It would be little short of an environmental catastrophe if, heaven forbid, we were to leave the European Union. Of course, not all European directives are perfect. Would I have drawn up the rules governing nitrate-vulnerable zones in precisely the way that has happened if I had been seeking a truly common-sense approach to a worthwhile purpose? Of course not. There is...

Scottish Parliament: Gaza (12 Aug 2014)

Sandra White: ...UN has said that the destruction is “unprecedented” and is like nothing the UN has ever seen before. Schools, hospitals and UN shelters have all been destroyed. There is no power or water and raw sewage is flowing in the streets, all because of the indiscriminate attack by the Israelis. The suffering of the Palestinian people must stop. The people of Gaza have been left with nothing. I...

Thames Tideway Tunnel — Question (14 May 2014)

Lord Smith of Finsbury: ...we last discussed the matter. Unhappily, cost and disruption will be involved, but does the Minister not agree that this is the only practical way of ensuring that we do not continue to discharge raw sewage into the Thames at least 50 times a year and of bringing an outdated Victorian drainage system, on which this city sits, up to the modern age?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Craigavon Area Hospital:  Sewage (13 May 2014)

Dolores Kelly: 5. asked the Minister of Health, Social Services and Public Safety whether he is aware of an adverse incident, if it could be called that, at Craigavon Area Hospital on 26 April, when raw sewage spilled from pipes into side wards in 1 North, with staff having to spend seven hours cleaning up the mess while patients wore masks; whether he accepts that morale in the health service is so low...

Scottish Parliament: Thirsting for Justice (4 Mar 2014)

John Finnie: ...I have, I certainly cannot go into the detail that I would like to. The blockade on Gaza is having a terrible toll. The Egyptian situation has not helped because of the closure of the tunnels. The sewage, which is dumped raw into the Mediterranean Sea, takes a toll more widely: the sea surrounds not only Gaza or Israel; many countries are affected by that pollution. I would like the rule...

Estimates Day — [2nd Allotted Day] — Supplementary Estimates 2013-14 — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Managing Flood Risk (3 Mar 2014)

Robert Walter: ...and excessive surface water—is just not going away. Residents are still pumping out their homes and the streets are awash with water that will not go away. There has been a very serious case of raw sewage overflowing from a local sewage plant, which was swamped by storm water that should have been kept separate. That is just what has happened in Sixpenny Handley. I could tell the House...

Jane Ellison: ...), and the relative risks to people from bacterial contamination of floodwater is, therefore, low, especially if the public health advice being widely distributed is followed.

Nationally, PHE carries out active surveillance for outbreaks...

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted day]: Flooding (26 Feb 2014)

Hilary Benn: ...for Tewkesbury (Mr Robertson) spoke about people’s homes. I remember visiting his constituency in 2007. There are few things worse than seeing one’s home invaded by dirty brown water full of sewage, seeing one’s possessions ruined, and in many cases having to flee one’s home with no idea when one will be able to return. We live in an era in which, as human beings, we have come to...

Gaza (Humanitarian Situation) (5 Feb 2014)

Tony Baldry: ...life at breaking point, with 11,000 people displaced by last month’s floods. Fuel shortages are such that donkey carts have replaced cars as a means of transport, the streets are overflowing with raw sewage and, with nearly 50% unemployment, the situation is like a tinderbox. The United Nations has said that Gaza will be unliveable by 2020”. Lord Warner, a Labour peer, asked what the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Flooding Prevention for New Developments (4 Feb 2014)

Mark Spencer: ...century. Sadly, the drainage systems of those villages have not grown at the same rate, and further developments upstream have added to the problem of drainage. Those villages are today faced with sewage systems that are already under enormous pressure and have a high risk of flooding during periods of prolonged or heavy rainfall. That is because there are often no top water drainage...

Water Bill: New Clause 4 — Sustainable drainage and automatic right to connect (6 Jan 2014)

Anne McIntosh: ...resilience in the sector. I was extremely pleased to see the emphasis on resilience in the water White Paper. Upstream reform aims to encourage upstream competition. I am talking about the input of raw or treated water into a water company’s network or the removal of waste water or sewage for treatment. Clause 1 unbundles all the existing licensing structures so that new entrants can...

Occupied Palestinian Territories (Water Shortages) (5 Dec 2013)

Alan Duncan: ...UK and others are working to right this wrong. In the west bank, the story begins with the unfair and unequal allocation of resources. Palestinians, as the hon. Gentleman said, are limited to withdrawing 20% of the water from the aquifers underneath the west bank. Domestic usage, understandably, is prioritised, leaving little left over for the vital irrigation of agricultural land....

Public Bill Committee: Water Bill: Clause 8 - Bulk supply of water by water undertakers (5 Dec 2013)

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Aid Dependency (4 Dec 2013)

Richard Burden: ...have economic development if it is not possible to import and to export? In Gaza, that has left more than 1 million people on food aid, while fuel shortages mean that 3,000 people are affected by raw sewage running into the streets. What is Britain going to do in practice to end the blockade of Gaza?

Bill Presented — High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) Bill: Water Bill (25 Nov 2013)

Ian Swales: ...flooding problems. Northumbrian Water has been investing heavily in tanks around the town and they are there to hold up excess surface water, to avoid inundating the sewerage system and putting raw sewage into the sea. Of course, given the golden beaches from Redcar down to Saltburn, which are a Mecca for surfers, I very much welcome that I and attended the “Surfers against Sewage”...

Railways: British Rail — Question (12 Nov 2013)

Baroness Wilcox: While I am delighted to travel by rail most of the time, all the way down to the West Country, I am very sorry to see, after all these years since 5 November 1993, that raw sewage is still going out on to the lines. Before we rush forward to HS2—to which I am looking forward enormously—I urge our new Minister to think about the men working on the lines and in the stations who have to...
