Alan Chambers: ...(NIW), albeit there has been a welcome increase in capital funding for NIW this year, it needs a long-term plan, with significantly greater funding in subsequent years, to develop the water and sewerage infrastructure to allow new homes and businesses to be built and, importantly, to mitigate localised flooding.

Environment Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 162 (5 Jul 2021)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: ...but dramatic rise in planned housing provision and the fact that we probably have too many people per cubic metre of water in many parts of our country—it is important that the drainage and sewerage management plans work. The amendment is designed to ensure that the plans work not only for present and future customers but for the environment. Above all, and I stress this, it is important...

Environment Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 161A (to Amendment 161) (5 Jul 2021)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...water quality. To pick up on some of the contributions, the noble Lord, Lord Chidgey, rightly raised the environmental damage that can be done by septic tanks and the need to link them to the main sewerage system. As he said, their existence is a primitive legacy of a pre-industrial age and a symptom of a lack of investment in the infrastructure over many years. My noble friend Lord Whitty...

Environment Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 160A (5 Jul 2021)

Lord Blencathra: My Lords, I declare my environmental interests as in the register. I support the noble Lord, Lord Cameron of Dillington, and his Amendment 163A, which encourages sewerage under-takers to consider nature-based solutions for wastewater treatment. We have new and emerging threats in trying to treat wastewater. We have microplastics and increasing levels of hormones and other pharmaceuticals, as...

Environment Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 73 (28 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: ...I am arguing for the importance of leaving the courts with a power to impose a financial penalty, as in this case, upon an unsuccessful body—including, for example, statutory undertakings such as sewerage and water undertakers—which has been found to be in breach of environmental law. It is extremely important that, in the context of what we are asking the OEP to do in the remit of the...

Environment Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 13 (23 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: ...wipes, baby wipes and now these antibacterial cleaning wipes, which we have all been purchasing and using during Covid. Perhaps the packets should say how to dispose of them. I know that water and sewerage companies are driven to distraction by wipes and ear buds being placed down toilets. This leads to blockages and untold difficulties. I am minded to table an amendment myself later if...

Martina Anderson: ...being the case, how will your Department take full advantage of these potential funding opportunities, maybe to develop additional North/South infrastructure projects?

Environment Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (21 Jun 2021)

Lord Randall of Uxbridge: put down a marker to show that I consider this to be extremely important. If we were sitting here in 1858, with the Great Stink going on, before Joseph Bazalgette came in with his plans for the sewerage of London, we would all be taking this a great deal more seriously.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Illegal Waste Dumping (21 Jun 2021)

Edwin Poots: ensure that that is the case, you would need to give Northern Ireland Water a few billion pounds to spend on infrastructure. That is the reality. For years, we did not spend money on water and sewerage infrastructure. When the Troubles were going, we were paying for police officers' overtime and for rebuilding buildings that had been blown up. There was some investment in roads, schools...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage (8 Jun 2021)

Roy Beggs: ...of Larne, a third of the multistorey flats need to come down, and there is a small application for some social housing. I fear that that will not be able to be built because we do not have adequate sewerage infrastructure and the application to build has not been joined to the demolition and rebuild; it is a separate, stand-alone application. It is important to have water infrastructure if...

Environment Bill - Second Reading (7 Jun 2021)

Lord Sheikh: ...Bill has provisions on air quality targets. I look forward to discussing these points further. I totally welcome Part 5, related to water quality, resources, drainage, and regulation of water and sewerage companies.

While progress has been made, a worrying...

Caroline Pidgeon: The 2019 Environmental Agency report on the environmental performance of water and sewerage companies in England highlighted that performance had deteriorated for the second year in a row, with half of serious incidents of pollution being due to Anglian Water and Thames Water.

Roy Beggs: The Minister has referred to the fact that there can be a wide range of sources of pollution, including the Water Service.
