“Today marks an important step towards completing our blue belt. We are creating safe havens for our cherished wildlife and putting the UK at the forefront of marine protection.
At the G7 summit in Quebec, Mrs May will call on leaders from Canada, the US, France, Germany, Italy and Japan to tackle pollution – and will claim that the UK is a “world leader on this issue”.
