Greener UK: ENSURING THE WITHDRAWAL BILL LEADS TO A GREENER UK PARLIAMENTARY BRIEFING
Greener UK believes that, no matter what the outcome of the Brexit negotiations, the people of these islands deserve a world class environment: clean air and water, a stable climate, healthy seas, beautiful landscapes and thriving wildlife in the places we love.
We welcome the UK government’s commitment to leave the environment in a better state. The Withdrawal Bill should be an important first step towards achieving this ambition, and the government has said it will “ensure that the whole body of existing EU environmental law continues to have effect”. But, as currently drafted, the bill contains flaws that will
leave our natural environment less well protected than it is now.
