Jason asked for a debate on the scourge of fly tipping whilst praising the wonderful local volunteer groups like Holmepride and Pride in Linthwaite & village volunteers in Honley and Hade Edge who help tidy up our communities.
Jason McCartney MP
May we have a debate on the scourge of fly-tipping and littering, which has sadly increased in my beautiful part of Yorkshire during the pandemic?
Will my right hon. Friend join me in thanking all the community groups, including Pride in Linthwaite, Holmepride, volunteers from Hade Edge and Honley villages, and many more, who have been out tidying up their communities during this troubling time?
Mr Rees-Mogg MP
Absolutely I will thank the community groups, including Pride in Linthwaite, Holmepride, the Hade Edge village volunteers and the Honley village volunteers.
This is fantastic. This is Britain at its best, with local people doing things to try to make their communities better and cleaner.
Fly-tipping is a disgraceful and criminal activity and a blight on local communities. I am sure that many MPs wish to campaign to stop it happening and to reduce the amount of litter that we see.
There was an Adjournment debate on that last Thursday, so it is an issue that is being discussed in the House.
