Local MP Alan Campbell is supporting World Water Day which is held annually 'as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources'. An international day to celebrate World Water Day was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) and the UN General Assembly designated 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day.

Alan Campbell said "In recent years there has been real progress in reducing the number of people in developing countries that do not have access to clean water or sanitation. However, as WaterAid's 'Everyone, Everywhere' report reminds us, 11% of the world's global population - 783 million people - remain without access to an improved source of drinking water and the UN estimate that 2.5 billion people in developing countries still lack access to improved sanitation facilities.

 

The Millennium Development Goals have provided huge momentum in addressing some of the most pressing challenges facing developing countries but it is clear that further progress is needed including on the key issue of improving access to clean water and sanitation.”

At Second Reading of the Enterprise Bill in the House of Commons the Government announced their intention to devolve Sunday Trading laws to local authorities and introduced amendments during the Commons Committee Stage.

Alan Campbell MP said “I strongly support the existing arrangements which work well and strike a sensible balance between the needs of those who want to shop and those who work in retail.  I therefore opposed the Government’s proposed changes in parliament today, voting in favour of an amendment to remove these provisions from the Bill. The Government was defeated by 317 votes to 286.

As the person responsible on our side for making sure we had the numbers and working with other parties I should admit I was slightly surprised by the scale of victory. I hope this now puts the issue to bed however should it return to Parliament, please be   assured that I will continue to echo the voices of small businesses, shopworkers and their families in support of the current arrangements.”
