Second reading in the House of Commons today for bill to prohibit plastic in wet wipes

Fleur Anderson’s bill to prohibit the manufacture and sale of wet wipes containing plastic had its second reading in the House of Commons last week.

Both Yorkshire Water and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust are backing the bill and are calling for an end to fine to flush labelling and mandatory do not flush labels for all single-use plastic sanitary items.

Yorkshire Water is also calling on the government to increase responsibility on manufacturers of the product to pay for the issues they cause in the nation’s sewers and watercourses.
