Catchment Based Approach’s Chalk Stream Restoration Strategy 2021 - Question for Short Debate (3 Nov 2021)

Lord Addington: ...say, “You should have learned your lesson by now.” That is when I heard things about phosphorus run-off, ground water pollution, and the fact we had a crumbling Victorian infrastructure for our sewerage system and how it was all going to be saved and stopped by privatisation. There is a ring of that coming through. I could go on and follow my noble friend in the details he has put...

Gordon Lyons: ...together. He mentioned the Department for Infrastructure in particular, and we can all agree that a cross-departmental approach is required.

I am grateful to him for that, but he raises some...

Gareth Thomas: ...the Budget, and there is no sense of the need to give consumers more power. Many hon. Friends on this side of the House have rightly described the huge windfalls that the shareholders in water and sewerage companies have attracted over the years, and it is surely high time for consumers to be given significant power to decide when a discharge should take place, for example, or whether a...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Sewage: Rivers (2 Nov 2021)

Initial...

Farming Rules for Water - Question (1 Nov 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: When will the Government be as tough on water and sewerage companies as they are on farmers? They seem to be very firm on the rules for farmers, yet last week, in a vote in the other place, they were quite happy to turn a blind eye to the sewage discharges of water companies that have been going on for 30 years. When will the Government be tough on water companies and their sewage discharges?

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Untreated Sewage: Discharge into Waterways (28 Oct 2021)

Rebecca Pow: ...had many meetings, would have legally bound Ministers to ensure that untreated sewage is not discharged from overflows, eliminating them.

We had to be mindful of that. The hon. Gentleman asks...

Lady’s area, like every water company, will now have to produce drainage and sewerage management plans so we can clearly see their...

Environment Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion H1 (as an amendment to Motion H) (26 Oct 2021)

Lord Chidgey: ...They are instead increasing discharges, apparently happy to risk fines running into hundreds of millions of pounds, which hardly dent their profits and could be better invested in modernising their sewerage infrastructure. I ask again: why? The powers and resources of our regulating agencies have been progressively stripped of funding, leaving them toothless and ineffective. Again, we...

Environment Bill: After Clause 72 - Protection of pollinators from pesticides (20 Oct 2021)

Rebecca Pow: ...(Luke Pollard), also spoke powerfully on this issue. We have had much conversation about it, and I think we are coming from the same place, but I say to him that we also have the drainage and sewerage management plans, which will set out how the water companies will manage their sewerage systems, and the Government have been really clear that we expect storm overflows to be addressed in...
