The Weeds Act 1959 extends and applies to England, Scotland and Wales. It does not extend to Northern Ireland. The subject area of the Act is devolved in relation to Scotland and Wales, and those devolved administrations will have their own approach to injurious weeds under the framework of the Act.
The Government has no plans to repeal the Weeds Act 1959 at this time. Defra’s injurious weeds policy aims to balance a variety of different interests in the countryside.
