Peter Aldous today signed a new manifesto, outlining ways the government can clean up the UK's rivers, seas, and waterways, including a new fund that could support local initiatives in Waveney to tackle pollution using money raised by fining polluting water firms.
Peter Aldous writes for The Independent: This government has only just been formed, but faces a generation-defining challenge, and must act imminently to protect millions of people from poverty this winter and beyond.
Peter Aldous backs the Finance Bill as the right balance in difficult circumstances and welcomes the protection for the most vulnerable and additional funding for health, social care and education. He urges the Government and oil and gas sectors to work together to ensure no unintended consequences from the energy sector levies.
Peter Aldous welcomes Government engagement with local fishermen in producing the bass fisheries management plan and seeks confirmation that the management plan accords with the trade and co-operation agreement, and will also apply to EU vessels.
