As the Environment Bill resumes its passage through Parliament, we revisit the landmark legislation and what it entails.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, there was a pause in discussions over the government’s landmark legislation.
However, the government is now resuming talks over the bill.
The Environment Bill is set to transform the environment.
It features a comprehensive and pioneering vision to help our environment flourish for future generations. Furthermore, it sets out how we can and keep and improve our environmental protections.
Other issues which feature in the bill include wildlife, air pollution, waste management and water supplies.
After the Environment Bill resumes and completes the current committee stage, it will go to the House of Commons for scrutiny. Following this, the bill will move to the House of Lords for more discussion.
