The Government is committed to having strong environmental protections, and on 12 November the Secretary of State set out plans to consult on a new, independent statutory body to regulate environmental policy and hold government to account on environmental commitments once the UK has left the EU.

The Government is also committed to delivering and promoting robust food standards nationally and internationally, to protect consumer interests, facilitate international trade, and ensure that consumers can have confidence in the food they buy.
