To ask Her Majesty's Government whether planning and consenting legislation, such as the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 (SI 2016/1154), will be amended to ensure that a favourable assessment from the European Commission is no longer required following withdrawal from the Euratom Treaty, prior to granting a permit or consent; and if so, how.

The UK’s future relationship with Euratom is subject to negotiation with the European Commission. Our aim is to seek a close and effective association with Euratom in future which aims to maintain as much continuity as possible. Any potential amendments that may be required to legislation as a result of the negotiations are under consideration.
