Post-Brexit environmental watchdog announced
The Rt Hon Michael Gove MP has pledged to set up an independent watchdog to hold the powerful to account and give Britain a "green Brexit".

Greener UK, of which Green Alliance is one of the 13 members, has pushed for high standards of post-Brexit environmental governance. Shaun Spiers, chair of Greener UK and executive director of Green Alliance, welcomed the news and stated that “the government shouldn't waste any time starting the conversation about what this body or bodies should look like as it will need to come into effect the day we leave the EU.”
