Did you mean law sewage?

Business of the House (26 Mar 2013)

Simon Hughes: not always the answer. We must make sure that we keep face-to-face provision. The substantive issue I want to address is the Thames tunnel proposed by Thames Water to deal with London’s sewage. I have been campaigning to clean up the Thames all my political life. Our sewers are overflowing. The wonderful Victorian sewer system cannot cope with the vast size of London and the now...

Scottish Parliament: Water Resources (Scotland) Bill (27 Feb 2013)

Alex Johnstone: ...have to make pronouncements on water shortages, I will be out there with my deck chair enjoying the change in the weather that we will experience. Part 4 has a key part to play in respect of raw water quality. I value the opportunity that it gives the industry to work hand in hand with other organisations and individuals to ensure that raw water is of the highest quality in Scotland....

Scottish Parliament: Water Resources (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (19 Dec 2012)

Colin Beattie: ...imposition of charges by Scottish Water is somehow immoral or improper. However, the water still has to be piped to our houses, the network of pipes and pumping stations has to be maintained, and sewage needs to be piped and treated. None of that would happen without our paying for it to happen. We are fortunate that our major water supplier remains in public ownership, unlike the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Water and Sewerage Services (Amendment) Bill: Second Stage (27 Nov 2012)

John Dallat: ...that we should, in any way, give up on our determination to ensure that the water delivered to our homes and industries is of the highest quality and, equally, that the infrastructure that carries sewage to the disposal plants is continually upgraded and improved.  We are a tourist region, and it is important that our beaches continue to have blue flags and are not contaminated by raw...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Regional Development: Mr Dickson asked the Minister for Regional Development to report what steps he proposes to take to reduce the possibility of further flooding. (2 Jul 2012)

Michael McGimpsey: ...put on record my thanks to Belfast City Council, the Housing Executive, Roads Service and the water service for their actions when they got into operation. The distress for householders caused by raw sewage flooding their houses is a huge emergency and is something that this Executive must take seriously.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Magilligan Prison (12 Jun 2012)

Cathal Ó hOisín: ...staff and inmates, has an inadequate sewerage system and will not have an adequate sewerage system any time in the next two years, when the new Magilligan waste water treatment plant is delivered. Raw sewage goes straight into the dunes or the sea beside a blue flag beach. That is a great tourism deterrent from the point of view of the status and designations that the area has. The...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Ballyhornan and Bishopscourt, County Down: Environmental Neglect (22 May 2012)

Caitriona Ruane: ...that are vital to social cohesion in south Down. I am asking that he deals with the asbestos. We heard about the sewerage and I will not repeat that, but it has to be dealt with. We cannot have raw sewage going into open sea. The lack of infrastructure and substandard roads highlight the extent of the problem, which is made worse by the fact that many of the houses are built out of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members’ Business: Lough Neagh (17 Apr 2012)

Oliver McMullan: ...lough supplies around 40% of Northern Ireland’s water. Can you imagine what would happen if ownership were to pass to the private commercial sector? We could be held to ransom over water supply. Sewage is just as important but has not been mentioned here today. Sewage has the potential to cost us more if the lough were to go into private commercial ownership, because, at present, raw...

Water Industry (Financial Assistance) Bill: Second Reading and Remaining Stages (27 Mar 2012)

Lord Smith of Finsbury: ...project to go ahead. The Thames tunnel is desperately needed. The problem has been mentioned on several occasions by other noble Lords. In an average year, at the moment, 39 million cubic metres of raw sewage, mixed with surface water run-off, discharges into the River Thames. That will reduce a bit with the Lee tunnel and with other work that is under way, but it will remain a hugely...

Protection of Freedoms Bill (Programme) (No. 4): National Policy Statement (Waste Water) (19 Mar 2012)

Gavin Shuker: ...tunnel. Labour supports the Thames tunnel project. In government, we foresaw the need for the tunnel and established both the commission and the enabling legislation. London’s sewers carry both raw sewage and rain water and were designed for 4 million inhabitants. There are now 8 million inhabitants, meaning that even small amounts of rain can cause massive amounts of untreated sewage to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Clause 2 — Financial assistance for major works (14 Mar 2012)

Andrew Slaughter: ...back to the point that I was making. I was pleased to receive an invitation from the right hon. Member for Bermondsey and Old Southwark to attend a meeting on 6 March in this place. This perhaps draws attention to the point that the hon. Member for Cities of London and Westminster (Mark Field) raised, because although probably 140 to 150 MPs would have been invited if the right hon....

Opposition Day: Backbench Business — [Unallotted part day] — Sergei Magnitsky (7 Mar 2012)

Jim Shannon: ...his allegations. He was imprisoned in a cell with eight inmates and four beds—a cell with no windows in the cold November Moscow winter—and was then moved to cells with no toilets, containing raw sewage. After continuing to refuse to withdraw his allegations, he was moved from prison to prison approximately 10 times. With each move, his property—not that he had much—disappeared,...

Bill Presented: Water Industry (Financial Assistance) Bill (6 Mar 2012)

Richard Benyon: ...which the Kennett flows—the Thames. Today, the proposed Thames tunnel offers the most timely, comprehensive and cost-effective solution to the combined sewer overflow problems and the dumping of raw sewage into our river. My right hon. Friend the Member for Bermondsey and Old Southwark (Simon Hughes) asked for the case on the tunnel to be compared once again with other proposals put...

Financial Institutions (Reform): Water Industry (Financial Assistance) Bill (29 Feb 2012)

Andrew Slaughter: .... When most people think about pumping stations, they think that some form of treatment is going on there. On the contrary: a structure that is probably half the size of this Chamber fills up with raw sewage, which is then pumped straight into the Thames, and that happens on at least a weekly basis. Does he agree that it is highly irresponsible to say that we should clean up the Thames so...

Gaza — Question for Short Debate (8 Feb 2012)

Lord Warner: industry has been brought to its knees, and farming has been unnecessarily restricted. After destroying some 1,300 Palestinian factories, Israel now prevents the import of machinery and raw materials to enable the Palestinians to rebuild their manufacturing capability, particularly in textiles and furniture in which they specialised. Businessmen have spoken to me about the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Northern Ireland Assembly (7 Feb 2012)

Francie Molloy: ...: Gortview in Coalisland. We saw on television recently that sewers there had not been connected to any main sewer. They had simply been run out of the houses and into a manhole in a field, and the raw sewage was flowing down the field with no control. The developer then went bankrupt, and the residents are now left in a dilemma, wondering who will make the situation right. The receiver is...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Northern Ireland Assembly (23 Jan 2012)

Mike Nesbitt: ...its system, as my colleague the Member for Strangford pointed out, I believe that the absolute extremes of scientific theory may suggest that the mussel has suffered because we no longer pump raw sewage into the lough. You may see mussels on the menu in the restaurant today, but, if those are modiolus modiolus, I suggest you choose the vegetarian option. The Ulster Wildlife Trust has taken...

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Rivers (22 Nov 2011)

Nicholas Soames: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if she will prohibit the discharge of raw sewage into English watercourses.

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted Day]: Environmental Protection and Green Growth (26 Oct 2011)

Andrew Selous: My hon. Friend mentioned the Environment Agency earlier. I wonder whether he shares my concern about its failure to take action in my constituency against the discharge of raw sewage into a local brook and on to farmland. It has instead suggested a policy of co-operation and education with the group responsible for that behaviour. Will he agree to take an interest in this matter and resolve...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Middle East (26 Oct 2011)

Michael Connarty: ...Affairs occupied Palestinian territory, which I believe every Member should look at regularly. Some 90% of the water in the aquifer in Gaza is undrinkable, while up to 80 million litres of raw or partly treated sewage is going into the sea, and the Israeli authorities have just bulldozed six wells on the west bank. Surely nothing can be more pressing than a man-made humanitarian disaster...
