To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what plans he has to combine the 25 Year Plan for the Environment with the 25 Year Plan for Food and Farming; whether there will be an opportunity for consultation prior to or after the publication of any individual or combined plan; and whether any such individual or combined plan will apply to England only.

There are no plans for a separate 25 Year Plan for Food and Farming, instead the 25 Year Environment Plan will help inform future agricultural and fishing policy.

There will be plenty of opportunities for interested parties to engage and help shape the Plan going forwards.

The Government will continue to work closely with the devolved administrations to improve our environment.
