Our Rivers meets the Minister at Westminster

Our Rivers, campaigning for the protection of all UK rivers seeks the Ministers views on the up coming requirement to meet the targets of the River Basin Management Plans. You will remember that the consultation on these plans was concluded last year.

The interview with Huw Irranca-Davies:

Meeting the Minister for Natural Environment from OurRivers Campaign

We feel that the targets set were far less onerous than perhaps they could have been and that the eventual outcome will be far less than we would have wished. However having made our views clear the process of implementation is soon to be approved. It is well worth listening to the Minister, however please note the total lack of reference to enforcement and to the provision of bailiffs. We must continue to work for this provision.
