Commenting on the publication of today’s Lord’s report saying that upholding environmental standards after Brexit will be hard, Trevor Hutchings Director of Advocacy at WWF-UK responded:

 

“Whilst upholding environmental standards may be hard it is also essential for our future. We need to not only uphold standards, but improve them, ensuring that they are robust for the 21st Century. From the air we breathe to the water we drink, the UK Government should use the opportunity of leaving the EU to set the highest standards of environmental governance that will protect our precious wildlife and wild places, both here and abroad - it is crucial that we get this right for our social and economic wellbeing. We cannot sleepwalk through this process, rather we need to embrace and shape our environmental future.”
