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.

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.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Fish Kill: Aghlisk River (25 May 2021)

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

We have gas pipes down in the basement, as well as air conditioning conduits, steam pipes, telephone systems and communication fibres—there is, of course, also a hugely overlaid and overworked sewerage system.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Enniskillen Bypass and A4 Upgrade (11 May 2021)

Jemma Dolan: ...snigger at how Fermanagh has been ignored, but I find it downright disgraceful and an insult to the people whom I represent. We have the worst broadband, the worst roads and possibly the worst sewerage infrastructure, all of which has a detrimental impact on the local economy and the opportunities available to us. The A4 upgrade and the Enniskillen bypass are not a magic bullet that will...

ODA Budget (26 Apr 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...: we are cutting aid budgets while at the same time increasing arms expenditure. More than 2 billion people around the world have no access to safe, clean water. Many more have even less access to sewerage or any other kind of facilities. For many around the world, security is something to eat, clean water, a health service and the ability to have their children educated. What kind of...

Business of the House (15 Apr 2021)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...Agency has brought 48 prosecutions against water companies, securing fines of £35 million. The Environment Bill will also place a statutory requirement on water companies to produce drainage and sewerage management plans to help deliver more of the actions needed to address the risks that sewage assets may pose to the environment.

Conor Murphy: ...that were available to the Department for Infrastructure through reinvestment and reform initiative (RRI) borrowing of some £70 million specifically for Northern Ireland Water for investment in sewerage and waste water treatment and water treatment facilities generally. The same point applies to the Narrow Water bridge. It has been funded by North and South, so why look a gift horse in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget Bill: Second Stage (2 Mar 2021)

Conor Murphy: the draft Budget. We have also looked to reinvestment and reform initiative (RRI) borrowing to increase that, because we recognise that the failure over many years to invest in our water and sewerage infrastructure has had a knock-on effect on the ability to develop and invest properly in growth, as well as having created environmental issues. Chris Lyttle, the Chair of the Education...

Deirdre Hargey: public land for public housing and doing a remapping exercise of available land that we can identify for housing.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: British-Irish Council Collaborative Spatial Planning and Housing: Infrastructure (1 Mar 2021)

Martina Anderson: one of the biggest issues facing housing and planning in the North. Plans are under way to build a waste water treatment pump at the Derry/Donegal border, for instance, so that the lack of sewerage capacity does not literally block the development of 4,000 housing units in the border area of Skeoge. That could benefit from the collaborative spatial planning that the Minister's statement...
