star this property answer text <p>The Government is currently not considering any specific proposals to create a North-South water pipeline. Though we do recognise that increasing interconnection in our water supply system to allow water to be traded and moved will help improve long-term resilience, water is heavy and expensive to move over long distances and its transfer can also have adverse environmental impacts. In the short-term, the transfers that are most likely to be beneficial are strategic interconnection projects to join up water supply zones within, and between, water company networks.</p><p>In the longer-term, greater join-up between these networks could allow for the more strategic management of water transfers over a wider area. With the industry, we are exploring ways to increase cross-company collaboration over the next water resources planning period.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Environment Agency is the competent authority for implementing the Water Framework Directive (WFD) in England. On the basis of Ministerial river basin planning guidance, the Environment Agency produces river basin management plans which set the policy framework for decision making by everyone with a stake in the water environment for each six-year planning period.</p><p>The Environment Agency has been reviewing the 2009 river basin management plans over the last three years. This has involved direct engagement with organisations with an interest in management and protection of the water environment, such as water undertakers, land managers, and planners, and three public consultations. Draft updated plans will shortly be submitted for approval to the Secretary of State and published.</p><p>Since the river basin plans were first published in 2009 the Environment Agency has worked with partners on projects to improve and protect over 15,000km of rivers, 52 bathing waters and more than 1,000 square kilometres of lakes. These projects include the installation of over 200 fish passes and almost 500 eel passes, which have opened up more than 12,000km of river to fish.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Despite UK opposition, asulam was withdrawn from the market at the end of 2012 following an EU review. Asulam is a valuable resource for land managers needing to control bracken. Therefore, in line with EU rules, limited and controlled use has been allowed to continue in the UK where alternative control measures would not be effective.</p><p>A new application for EU approval has been submitted and is currently being examined by the Health and Safety Executive. Their assessment will be completed later this year and will be peer reviewed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which will issue its own conclusions. The European Commission will then decide whether to approve asulam for use. If approval is granted, Member States can consider applications to authorise products containing asulam.</p><p>The Government believes that decisions on the approval and authorisation of pesticides should be taken on the basis of a scientific assessment of risk. If the assessment shows that asulam can be used without unacceptable risk, this should be permitted.</p><p> </p>
