He is calling for on the government to ensure the Environment Bill ensures our nature protection laws remain at least as strong as they are now after Brexit, sets new targets for to safeguard the environment and establishes a world-leading environmental watchdog to ensure nature is properly protected.

Ian Austin said:

“We need urgent action to protect and safeguard the environment.

“It’s really important that the Government safeguards all EU environmental rights, standards and protections and this must include an Agriculture Bill which enhances the responsibility for farmers to conserve habitats for birds, insects and other wild animals and a Fisheries Bill which contains a clear approach towards greater sustainability.             

“That’s why I’m urging the Government to ensure that their Environment Bill ensures our nature protection laws remain at least as strong as they are now, sets new targets for nature's recovery, and establishes a world-leading environmental watchdog to ensure nature is properly protected.”
