Gavin Shuker MP, Labour’s Shadow Environment Minister, speaking ahead of the start of the hosepipe ban tomorrow in many parts of the country, said

“The hosepipe ban and water restrictions are further bad news for households worried about the weather.  We have seen the driest twelve months on record and drought conditions will become more common in future.

Lack of water could mean food prices go up, wildlife will suffer and, in the worst case, construction and energy industries affected. The Government needs to stop dragging its feet and legislate for the long awaited reforms we need to protect our water supply.”
