This is a victory for millions of people across the country who have voiced their outrage at water companies being allowed to get away with polluting rivers and coastlines.
Liberal Democrat MP Richard Foord tabled the amendment to the UK Infrastructure Bank Bill, which originally wrote a blank cheque of taxpayers money to polluting water companies.
The change to the Bill means the UK Infrastructure Bank can only fund water companies if they produce a costed and timed plan for ending sewage discharges into rivers.
The Liberal Democrats have been their voice on this environmental scandal and we will continue to champion their cause.
There is still a long way to go. The Government is still refusing to ban sewage discharges into swimming water and areas where protected wildlife live - and they are still refusing to ban water company CEOs rewarding themselves with bonuses whilst this environmental scandal happens.
The fight continues and we’ll keep holding the Government and water companies to account.
Tax water companies' huge profits and fix our sewage system.
