River pollution

 I missed the Panorama programme on this subject yesterday (BBC Wales shunted it to a late night slot). However, it is clear that the negligence of water companies in England in allowing the frequent overflow of raw sewage into watercourses is greater than that of Dwr Cymru, which at least has no shareholders to answer to. Presumably there were no complaints from Scotland where water and sewerage are predominantly still under public control.

 One trusts that the Westminster government's laissez-faire attitude to the water companies who are a crucial factor in English public health will be rigorusly questioned in the House this week.
