Environment Bill

The Environment Bill is heading back to the House of Commons, having been significantly changed by the Lords. Peers made 14 amendments to the bill, in the face of government opposition. Changes include a demand for government to declare a biodiversity and climate change emergency, improve protection for ancient woodland and to eliminate sewage discharges into rivers. The government is now under pressure to get the bill passed, having previously said it would be law before COP 26. Last month, environment minister Lord Goldsmith said it was in the “national and international interest” for the bill to be become law before the November climate conference in Glasgow. And speaking to the i in July, he suggested delaying the bill could mean “weakening our hand in these extraordinarily important climate and environment negotiations”. However, time is running out as both the House of Commons and House of Lords have to agree any changes to the bill before it can become law.
