Minister agrees to crisis visit to local Rivers

I have just got back from holding my debate on the condition of rivers in England and I am pleased to say that it went really well, it was very well supported by MPs from all parties and the Environment Minister Huw Irranca Davis MP even agreed to visit the “water stressed” Rivers Beane and Mimram!

After the Minister agreed that the situation was serious, I asked him if he would visit these rivers in my constituency and he accepted to arrange a visit this summer with myself and local campaigners.

Tony Last and Tony Langford of the Friends of the Mimram and Dave Stimpson of the River Beane Restoration Association who attended the debate were delighted at the news and at the end the two Tonys later met the Minister for a quick chat.

Now that the WWF are on board and the Minister has agreed to visit the rivers perhaps we are now one step closer  to saving our precious Hertfordshire environment.
