Protect Rivers (plastic pollution) - Environment Bill

Thank you to everyone who continues to contact me about plastic pollution in UK rivers.

To follow-up my response here of 20 June, you may be aware that the Government has very recently introduced its landmark Environment Bill. This will place environmental ambition and accountability at the heart of government. Legislative measures will be introduced to address the biggest environmental priorities of our age: air quality, nature recovery, waste and resource efficiency, and water resource management. The Bill will also put environmental ambition and accountability at the very heart of government.
