§ Lord Carmichael of Kelvingrove
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When they will undertake public consultation on the review of legislation relating to the Environment Agency and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency. [HL3178]
§ Lord Whitty
We previously announced that we would review the legislation relating to the Environment Agency and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, with a view to identifying any barriers preventing the agencies from taking an integrated approach to the environment. We are issuing the relevant consultation paper today, copies of which have been placed in the Library. We are sending it to a wide range of bodies, and publishing it on the Internet.
