The Secretary of State has set out plans to consult shortly on a new, independent and statutory body to hold Government, and potentially public authorities, to account on environmental commitments once we have left the EU. We are also proposing to consult on the creation of a new policy statement on environmental principles to apply when we leave the EU.
