Preseli Pembrokeshire Senedd Member Paul Davies has voted for an urgent review of the Welsh Government’s NVZ regulations to take place, following a Welsh Conservative debate on the topic earlier this week. As a result of the debate, a Senedd committee will urgently review The Water Resources (Control of Agricultural Pollution) (Wales) Regulations 2021 and present its recommendations to the Senedd.
Mr Davies said, “This is the first step in getting these disproportionate regulations scrapped and I’m pleased that a Senedd Committee will urgently review these regulations. The regulations introduced in April - will have a devastating impact on farms and livelihoods across Pembrokeshire and I’ve been clear that we need a much more targeted approach to water pollution. Therefore, it’s vital that a review takes place quickly and these regulations are dropped before valued jobs and businesses are lost.”
