Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Nov 2021)

Huw Merriman: ...and propose reform; what is not fair is denigrating people who work incredibly hard to improve our legislation.

During periods of heavy rain, the Thames Water network simply cannot cope due to surface water ingress, so raw sewage bubbles up into the roads. I have been pushing Thames Water for a solution.

Planning (Enforcement) Bill (19 Nov 2021)

Ben Spencer: It is shameful. They build temporary homes with no thought to infrastructure, sewage, water or the impact on local services, all without permission. They destroy green fields and forest to make a quick buck. That in itself is enough to infuriate anyone, particularly my residents who live next to a rogue development, but there is something even worse—even more toxic and offensive—than the...

Water Companies: Sewage Discharge — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (15 Nov 2021)

Rebecca Pow: ... (Luke Pollard), says—I do, as he knows, have great respect for him—that our Labour colleagues did not, in the end, vote to make that law to get water companies to reduce harm from storm sewage overflows. The tables were turned, and for that I am sorry. I think we need to get over that, too, and we all need to move on—

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 191 (10 Nov 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: ...Boris Johnson—surely we can be a little kinder to young people. On “exceptional circumstances”, we all know that if you are a water company, exceptional circumstances mean you can release a sewage discharge any time you like, so, presumably, “exceptional” can be anything you want it to be, which is a little bit upsetting when it comes to the law, where words matter and should be...
