Title: Poor Rating For North East Coastal Waters (2 of 3)

Of interest to: North East

Script details:
More than two years after authorities were ordered to improve waste treatment in the North East, a report’s again warning of poor coastal water quality.

The European Environment Agency says 30-50% of our waters aren't in a good ecological state.

In 2012, the EU’s Court of Justice ruled infrastructure should be upgraded, following a campaign by residents living in and around Whitburn.

Jude Kirton-Darling, North East Labour MEP, says not enough’s being done to address the concerns raised in that case:

Title: Poor Rating For North East Coastal Waters (1 of 3)

Of interest to: North East

Concerns are being raised about the water quality on the North East coast, as it’s slammed in a report from Europe.

A study out today from the European Environment Agency says between a third and half of coastal and transitional waters here aren’t in a good ecological state.

That compares poorly just a little further north, where Scotland’s coasts are rated much better.

Title: MEP: Report Shows Minimum Wage Should Be Devolved (2 of 3)

Of interest to: Scotland

Script details:
There are calls for the minimum wage to be devolved to Holyrood – because ours ranks behind the likes of France and Germany.

Figures from the EU show the UK comes seventh in a list of the twenty two member countries that have a national minimum level.

The SNP say it needs to be higher to address the rising cost of living.

Nationalist MEP, Ian Hudghton, believes raising it would have a number of benefits:

Title: Call For More Action To Tackle Prostitution (2 of 3)

Of interest to: London

Script details:
Europe needs to do much more to tackle prostitution, according to one of London’s MEPs.

Today marks a year since the passing of the Honeyball resolution at the European Parliament, named after Labour’s Mary Honeyball.

It calls for demand for the sex trade to be reduced by punishing clients, rather than sellers.

Ms. Honeyball says it’s an approach adopted in Sweden:

Title: Call For More Action To Tackle Prostitution (1 of 3)

Of interest to: London

Script details:
A London Euro MP says more still needs to be done to tackle prostitution in Europe, a year on from the passing of a resolution in her name.

Mary Honeyball’s efforts last year led to the European Parliament calling for greater support for women involved.

The London Labour MEP’s approach has been to look at the Swedish example, which punishes the client, rather than the victim, by criminalising the buying of sex.

But she says there are strong signs from the capital that making it difficult to operate can also lead to results:
