unstar this property answer text <p>As I promised during the debate, my Department has written to all local authorities reminding them that the overriding factor when considering whether a dog breeder should be licensed is whether they are in the business of breeding and selling dogs. We also pointed out that local authorities can add conditions to individual pet shop licences restricting the species of animals sold.

unstar this property answer text <p>Implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) is a devolved matter. In England, the Environment Agency is the competent authority for implementing the WFD. It has complied with all relevant requirements in the eight river basin districts for which it is responsible by the relevant deadlines and has reported on progress, as required, to the European Commission.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In England, £3.4 billion is being invested by water companies between 2010-2015 to protect and improve our water environment. By 2015 we expect to reduce phosphate pollution from sewage works by a further fifth and ammonia by a sixth compared to 2010. In addition, the Government has invested £88 million on action to restore our rivers, covering more than 15,000 km of river (more than the Amazon and Nile Rivers laid end-to–end), improving the status of 429 water bodies, and preventing deterioration of a further 137 water bodies.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Maintaining flood defence assets depends on a combination of capital and revenue funding. This Government is spending £3.2 billion on flood management and defences in this Parliament, which is a real terms increase and half a billion pounds more than in the previous five years.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We have committed a record level £2.3 billion capital funding right up until 2021. This is a real terms average increase in capital investment compared with the current spending review period and the long-term commitments will allow us to get better value for money. We have also provided an extra £70 million of revenue funding for the Environment Agency to maintain its defences: £35 million this year and £35 million next year, on top of the £5 million we had already committed in 2015/16 before the winter storms.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The National Audit Office report ‘Strategic Flood Risk Management’ was considered by the Public Accounts Committee on 24 November. The Government will respond to the Committee’s recommendations in early 2015.</p><p> </p>
