Government brings forward Environment Bill

Government brings forward Environment Bill
In the months after the Brexit referendum, the Greener UK coalition succeeded in persuading the government to recognise and take action to address the environmental governance gap after the UK left the EU.

Working closely with parliamentarians, Greener UK secured changes to the 2018 EU Withdrawal Act to require the government to bring forward draft legislation. Following this, the prime minister announced the first dedicated Environment Bill since 1995, which would also address wider environmental issues.
