Report proves how instrumental EU is in cleaning up Britain's beaches
 
Keith Taylor, MEP, comments on the European Environment Agency report on bathing water quality.
 
"As the EU referendum approaches, this report provides a timely reminder that EU laws continue to deliver important environmental and public health safeguards in Britain.
 
It’s difficult to overstate just how instrumental EU legislation has been in driving up the quality and safety of British beaches. UK beaches were once so polluted Britain was known as the ‘dirty man of Europe‘."

"As a member of the European Union, British conservationist organisations benefit from the largest single body of environmental legislation in the world. The regulations and safeguards help reduce pollution, tackle climate change, and protect the wildlife we hold so dear"
