Marco Longhi: ...the area being named the most unhealthy place in the country in the mid-19th century, because of the dreadful working and living conditions. That led to the installation of clean water supplies and sewerage systems. Dudley had the highest mortality rate in the country.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (25 Feb 2020)

Jim Wells: ...saying, "This is a disaster. This is the semi-privatisation of our water service". Now, nobody in Wales wants to go back to the old model. They have been freed to invest in upgrading the water and sewerage system to make certain that they no longer have the deficit that we have. They have been able to fund their water supply and sewerage system adequately. Are we prepared, as an Assembly...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (25 Feb 2020)

Paul Frew: my constituency who told me that, even though he has planning permission for apartments, which are badly needed in the area in which he is going to build, he cannot get a connection for sewerage. That is another massive issue that the Assembly really has not dealt with at any time. Just because we cannot see the pipes underneath our ground does not mean that they are not breaking down,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the Spring Supplementary Estimates 2019-2020 and Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Estimates and Vote on Account 2020-21 (24 Feb 2020)

Patsy McGlone: I thank the Member for giving way. Does she accept that, without the necessary investment, particularly in our sewerage infrastructure, key elements such as housing, affordable housing, economic and industrial development, and, equally, councils' local development plans could be rendered nothing more than academic exercises?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the Spring Supplementary Estimates 2019-2020 and Supply Resolution for the Northern Ireland Estimates and Vote on Account 2020-21 (24 Feb 2020)

Michelle McIlveen: the Department, it has not been possible to fund Northern Ireland Water to the levels recommended by the Utility Regulator. New housing developments and businesses are not able to connect to the sewerage network in over 100 towns and villages across Northern Ireland. This has the potential to stagnate development, with various knock-on effects. The Minister advised the Committee that...

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: The Water Industry Act 1991 places a duty on water and sewerage companies to provide, maintain and extend a system of public sewers to ensure that the area is and continues to be effectually drained.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Climate Emergency (3 Feb 2020)

Edwin Poots: ...products, including microbeads, in March 2019. That will have a significant benefit, as it is estimated that products used in a single shower could result in 100,000 plastic particles entering the sewerage system. Where an energy strategy is concerned, Sinn Féin brought forward a notion about closing down RHI. Let me say this: the ambitions of RHI were good. The introduction of the...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill (22 Jan 2020)

Chi Onwurah: obligation to provide water to a property, they are entitled to enter any premises for the purposes of determining whether or how to exercise their powers, and the same powers are extended to sewerage providers. However, this Bill gives no statutory right of access to telecoms companies and places no obligation on landlords to facilitate access. I am not saying the Bill should do that,...

Health and Social Care (16 Jan 2020)

Elliot Colburn: ...been called Ceashorton, or Caesar’s Town, in ancient times, because of the belief that the Roman Emperor once pitched up camp there. However, during an excavation of what is now the Beddington sewerage farm, it was discovered that instead of a hoard from Roman legions it was, rather, a Roman bath house that occupied the site. If we fast-forward to the Tudor period—I know my right hon....

Scottish Parliament: Sustainable Development Goals (16 Jan 2020)

Lewis Macdonald: “food insecure”. Perhaps less familiar are the finding of research by Citizens Advice Scotland, that “12% of households in Scotland may struggle to afford their charges” for water and sewerage, and the projection by Changeworks, that the current Scottish Government target “means that in 2040, 5% of the Scottish population will still be in fuel poverty, due to poor energy...

A Green Industrial Revolution (15 Jan 2020)

Steve Double: ...have too many of these sewage systems that combine household foul waste water—sewage—with rainwater and surface water from run-off drains. When we have heavy rainfall, all of that gets into the sewerage system and it just cannot cope. Untreated raw sewage is therefore pumped into the seas. We have been monitoring this situation and we found that, just in the recreational summer season...

Scottish Parliament: Prison Estate (11 Dec 2019)

Rachael Hamilton: ...will be available for a further five years. The prison’s age means that it is expensive to maintain and there is a high risk of failure in some parts of the building, including the drainage and sewerage systems. If those were to fail, what is the contingency plan for accommodating the prisoners whom Barlinnie currently holds?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Prison Service (Auditor General’s Report) (3 Dec 2019)

Maurice Corry: ...capacity, with prisoners doubling up in cells, which cannot help rehabilitation. Barlinnie’s age is such that there is a high risk of failure in parts of the building, such as the drainage and sewerage systems. What contingency plans are in place in case of such failures? For how long does the cabinet secretary envisage prisoners having to share cells?

Southern Water (28 Oct 2019)

Rebecca Pow: ..., so we expect the water industry to take more action in several areas, such as reducing demand for water alongside investing to increase water supplies. The industry also needs to take action on sewerage infrastructure. We recently consulted on a range of measures to reduce personal water usage, including a call for evidence. The need for investment in infrastructure is well set out in...

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Bob Seely: support those additional homes, because we are an island. Our hospitals are full, public services are under pressure despite the extra funding, which I am grateful for, electricity and sewerage are at capacity and a third of our water comes from the mainland. The Green Book calculations do not serve the Island well. We intend to present an Island plan to Government that will have a...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill - Report: Amendment 1 (3 Sep 2019)

Baroness Wheeler: ...the process. These amendments help to alleviate our concerns and ensure that restoration and renewal becomes about far more than the necessary bricks and mortar, rewiring and replacement, and sewerage and stairways. They also allow us to change the way Parliament looks and feels, both inside and out. Like other noble Lords, we read with great interest the results of the 2019 Members survey...

Therese Coffey: Since 1995 over £25 billion has been invested in improving sewage treatment and sewerage collection systems. This has achieved a 61% reduction in the amount of phosphorus and a 72% reduction in the amount of ammonia discharged to rivers. Bathing waters and rivers are cleaner than ever but there is still more to do. The recent deterioration in the environmental performance of the water...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (25 Jul 2019)

Therese Coffey: The Government absolutely take that seriously. Investment in sewerage has seen a huge reduction in phosphorous and ammonia entering waters, and the Environment Agency is very active on the issue. It undertakes checks of the ecological health of rivers regularly and it will, as will Ofwat, take action against Yorkshire Water when it fails.
