MPs call for immediate release of 25-year plan for nature
02 Mar 2017
The government's long-delayed 25-year plan for improving nature in England should be published immediately, MPs have said in a letter to the Environment Secretary Andrea Leadsom.
They asked her to explain why the strategy due in 2016 is still not out.
They say it's essential that ministers have agreed and published a clear plan before negotiations on Brexit begin.
The government promised in its manifesto that it would leave nature in a better state than it was inherited.
