Government announces consultation on environmental principles and governance

10 May 2018

Defra has announced a consultation today on the Environmental Principles and Governance Bill to hold government to account.

The Government says that a new Environmental Principles and Governance Bill will ensure that environmental protections in England will not be weakened as the UK leaves the EU.

The consultation started today on the contents of the Bill, which will establish a new body to hold government to account for environmental outcomes.

CIEEM has already started gathering its evidence and drafting its position on a new body and will be responding to the consultation. If you would like to contribute to the response please contact policy@cieem.net.

The consultation closes on 2 August 2018
