Environmental principles and governance post-Brexit


The Climate Change Environment and Rural Affairs Committee (‘the Committee’) is carrying out an inquiry into environmental governance and principles. This work builds on the Committee’s report published last year in which it made recommendations to both the UK and Welsh Government on environmental governance and principles post-Brexit.

The Committee is seeking views on:


  • Gaps in environmental governance structures and principles post-Brexit in Wales and whether the Welsh Government’s analysis (within the consultation) correctly and comprehensively identifies the deficiencies;
  • The Welsh Government’s consultation proposals and questions regarding the environmental principles, and the function/constitution/scope of the  proposed governance body; and
  • The value and practicality of a UK joined approach given the UK Government’s Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs’s (DEFRA) proposal that new governance structures in England could exercise functions more widely across the UK.
