Help save the laws that protect all of us from pollution
Laws that protect us from toxic chemicals and keep rivers free from sewage could face the axe if a senior Government minister gets his way.
Oliver Letwin MP is considering replacing all green safeguards with a dangerously simplified 50-page document - according to media reports.
They include rules that protect us from:
- Asbestos in the air
- Industrial waste in rivers
- Toxic chemicals
A full list of existing safeguards is on the Government's red tape challenge website.
It is unclear which of the important protections would end up in the bin if Mr Letwin gets his way.
Please ask him to reveal his plans - or deny them if they are untrue.
Don't let him bin our protection from toxic chemicals.
