Strengthening the law on sewage pollution

Guy Linley-Adams has been assisting Philip Dunne MP in drafting his Private Members’ Bill, the Sewage (Inland Waters) Bill, brought forward in the Commons in 2020. Although that Bill failed to progress in the Commons, in the Lords, many of the provisions were adopted for the Duke of Wellington’s similar Private Members’ Bill and have formed the basis of debates seeking amendments to the Environment Bill in 2021. Guy also gave oral evidence to the Environment Audit Committee’s inquiry into Water Quality in Rivers Water Quality in Rivers – Committees – UK Parliament on the failure of the water companies to meet their duties under the Water Industry Act 1991.
