Commenting on the news, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Climate Change, Janet Finch-Saunders MS said:

“The Welsh Conservatives have long called for more decisive action from Labour on this issue, water companies need to be held accountable, for 600,000 hours of sewage dumping in Wales, with no consequences is inexcusable.

“As a mater of urgency, a review is needed into the fact that since 2016 Natural Resources Wales has sent out over 350 warning letters to Welsh Water, but only prosecuted six times. That strikes me as a massive enforcement failure.

The Labour Government need to get a grip on this issue and hold the water companies and NRW to account. Labour still haven’t published their much-needed storm overflow report, which is now 3 months overdue. Labour continues to turn a blind eye to sewage being dumped in Wales.”
