To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, if he will make it his policy to establish a national nature service; and if he will make a statement.
Environmental organisations make a valuable contribution to the Government's environmental agenda, through conservation of the natural environment; engaging people in the natural world; and providing access to our beautiful landscapes and coastlines.
As we rebuild our economy in response to the coronavirus pandemic, we must continue to shape an economy and society that are cleaner, greener and more resilient. This Government remains committed to the UK being a world leader on tackling the environmental crises we face.
We welcome the range of proposals that have been shared by groups including environmental organisations to deliver a green recovery. We are reviewing these based upon the best use of public funds. Government is also carefully considering the Glover proposals and will respond in due course.
