Jesse Norman secures support for long-term plan to clean up the River Wye

Jesse Norman secures support from the Deputy Prime Minister to establish a long-term integrated plan to clean up the River Wye.

Jesse Norman (Hereford and South Herefordshire) (Con)

The House will know that the River Wye is one of the most beautiful rivers in our country and also a priceless national asset, yet it is being threatened by phosphate pollution. Will my right hon. Friend press colleagues in the Government and in No. 10 to work with us to push the agencies and other interested bodies to a long-term integrated plan to clean up the River Wye?

The Deputy Prime Minister (Dominic Raab)

Of course, the Government understand, and my right hon. Friend champions eloquently, the importance of the River Wye. We will do everything we can to support him with preserving it for future generations.
