Alert me about debates like this

Amendment proposed: 184, in clause 35, page 21, line 28, at end insert—

‘(8A) Where the Upper Tribunal makes a statement of non-compliance it may impose a remediation requirement to take such steps as it may specify, within such period as it may specify, to secure that the net environmental position is restored to what it would have been if the offence had not been committed.’—

The amendment would give the Tribunal the power to require a public authority to make amends for environmental harm resulting from a breach of the law.
