The Government is working closely with the Scottish and Welsh Governments, and the Northern Ireland Civil Service, on a programme of work to develop common UK frameworks across a range of policy areas, including those relating to environmental policy, legislation and regulation. The Government has published two iterations of the frameworks analysis, in March 2018 and April 2019 respectively, which set out all the policy areas where EU law intersects with devolved competence and our approach in each area (1).
