Petition Do not weaken river pollution rules
The head of the Environment Agency has endorsed a proposal to weaken laws on cleanliness of polluted rivers, lakes and coastlines after Brexit.
Campaigners say Sir James Bevan is trying to “rig the system” to cover up decades of failure by the agency.
Our environment laws should be getting better, not worse. This government is weakening and threatening laws associated with animal welfare and the environment. It needs to stop.
