Toxic Tory Filth is Destroying British Waters
The Conservatives are up to their necks in a sewage crisis of their own making.
Water companies dumped raw sewage in British rivers and lakes 300,000 times last year. Now, the Office for Environmental Protection has announced that the Conservative Government may have broken the law by letting them get away with it.
Labour is committed to protecting Britain’s precious waters and wants to see massive, automatic fines to punish law-breaking water companies.
Steve Reed MP said:
The Prime Minister would not tolerate raw sewage in his private swimming pool, so why is he happy to treat the British countryside as an open sewer?
Steven Reed is Labour MP for Croydon North and Shadow Minister for Children and Families. In 2018 his private member’s bill on reducing violent mental health restraint became law. In June 2019 he launched Labour’s civil society strategy outlining radical plans to empower citizens and communities.
