Owing to the prorogument of Parliament, it has been decided not to carry over the discussion and implementation of the Environment Bill and the Agriculture Bill intended to replace legislation currently in force from the EU: this effectively killing these Bills. This decision is morally and politically untenable. It needs to be reversed.
Why is this important?
Without this legislation in place, in the event of a no deal Brexit, numerous environmental laws will be unenforced and farmers will not be able to apply for funding to help agriculture become more sustainable and undertaken with the intention of helping to mitigate climate change. The consequences are self-evident.
