Written Answers — Cabinet Office: New Businesses (26 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, how many (a) agriculture, (b) forestry and (c) fishing businesses were registered in (a) 2010, (b) 2015 and (c) 2020.

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: indicated assent.

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I beg to move, That this House calls on the Government to set a target for the reduction of sewage discharges, to provide for financial penalties in relation to sewage discharges and breaches of monitoring requirements, and to carry out an impact assessment of sewage discharges; and makes provision as set out in this Order: (1) On Tuesday 2 May 2023: (a) Standing Order No. 14(1) (which...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I will make some progress and take some interventions later—[Interruption.] Hang on; your moment will come. It goes to our leisure and beauty spots. Businesses rely on tourists coming with confidence. It is clear that the Tories either do not know, or do not care about the human impact of the Tory sewage scandal. This affects every stretch of our coastline across the country, and it shows...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: Thank you, Mr Speaker—we’ve 12 months yet. I will take interventions once I have made progress on this section. Hon. Members should not worry; their opportunity to defend the last 13 years in government will come—they should not worry too much about that. At its heart, this speaks to whether families should have the right to live a decent and fulfilled life. People look to our seas,...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I welcome that intervention. I would also welcome an explanation to the hon. Lady’s constituents as to why there have been 200 sewage incidents in her own backyard. That is why her constituents send her here—to ensure that their interests are put right—[Interruption.] I will come on to Labour’s record, but I warn Government Members that it may not paint the last 13 years in a good light.

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I will make some progress. This is an environmental hazard, a health hazard and an economic hazard. The full scale of the billions of pounds that the Tory sewage scandal is costing our businesses and local economies is still not fully known. Why? Because the Government will not undertake an economic assessment of the impact of sewage dumping. What do they have to hide? [Interruption.] Members...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I am very happy to look into that point. As a matter of course, we always ensure when visiting the constituents of Conservative MPs that as a matter of respect we inform the local MP. I would love nothing more than for a Conservative MP to attend those visits and explain their voting record to their constituents. I know that Helena Dollimore, the Labour and Co-operative candidate, was very...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I will take an intervention shortly from the Opposition Benches. Mr Speaker, do you know that raw human sewage is even being discharged moments away from these very Houses of Parliament? Members should think about that when they go to vote. There is no place exempt from the Tory sewage scandal—and what a metaphor for the last 13 years of a Tory Government.

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: That is exactly what this debate is about: MPs who care about the places they represent standing up for what is right, instead of making excuses for 13 failed years in government. That is exactly why Members are sent to this House, and others could take note. What we have seen is that there is no respect for our country, there is no respect for our values, there is no respect for our history...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: Honestly, I am staggered. I say that with respect to the Chair of the EFRA Committee. Our figures are based on the Government’s figures, and I am happy to put them in the House of Commons Library. DEFRA’s own figures put a cost on Labour’s plan and, let me tell him, the lowest estimate is 10% of what has been taken out in dividends. Those are not our figures; they are the Government’s...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I have already given way once. Let me make some progress. Last week, Labour published analysis of Environment Agency and Top of the Poops data which showed that in 2022, Tory Ministers—this is the Cabinet, the highest seat in government—allowed 7,500 days’ worth of raw human sewage to be dumped in their constituencies. The data showed that there is a sewage dump taking place every 22...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I am not one to offer advice to those on the Government Benches, but I will just say this to eager Back Benchers bobbing for their Whips: they might want to check their constituency’s data before getting up to defend the Government’s record. [Interruption.]

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: Thank you, Mr Speaker. The hon. Lady will know that her own constituency has had nearly 2,000 sewage dumps. If she wants to defend that record to her constituents, then so be it—fine. But if she does not want to remind her constituents, I can guarantee this: the Labour candidate will. That is what this debate is about and why Members are so exercised, let us be honest. Are Members exercised...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I am going to make some progress. The Government will blame everybody: the Victorians, devolved Administrations, home drainage, housebuilders, people flushing items down the loo. Now, it is true that this issue has to be faced on multiple fronts, but there is one common theme that has run throughout the Secretary of State’s period in office. What is it? They never take responsibility; it is...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: That is a really good point. Many people think that this must be an issue that affects our seas and our national parks, but it goes to every community. For those who live in an urban community, the stream or canal network near their home is being dumped on. For many communities that is all they have. That is their bridge to nature, and it is being treated with such disrespect by the...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I am not sure whether Parliament can do some sort of induction for Conservative Members on how Parliament works and where power sits, but the House of Commons Library is very good at providing briefings for MPs. To be clear, the economic regulator Ofwat reports solely to the Environment Secretary for the UK. That is a matter of fact. It is not devolved; it is for the UK. The economic levers...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I will make some progress. Conservative MPs should see this as a second chance, which everyone deserves. Let us take our mind back to the first chance, which was the passage of the Environment Act 2021, and an amendment that Labour backed that would have introduced a legal obligation to bring down sewage dumping progressively. It was blocked by Conservative MPs, who voted against it. It fell...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: Let me make this point, because it ties in with following the money and tracking back to the impact. The storm overflow data, which water companies themselves provide to the Government, tells us that not a single one of the dumping incidents from last year was a result of exceptional circumstances. They were not down to rainfall or storms—the water companies and the Government say so. It is...

Water Quality: Sewage Discharge (25 Ebr 2023)

Jim McMahon: I will give way to the hon. Gentleman, as he has been persistent.
