Defra Recall: Environmental protection


The Committee will question senior officials at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on a range of environmental protection issues.

Questioning will follow up on previous inquiries on waste crime including the increasing involvement of criminal gangs; dangerous breaches of air quality; water supply, sewage discharges and protection of rivers; and the Environmental Land Management Scheme introduced to replace the EU Common Agricultural Policy after Brexit.

If you have new evidence on any of these issues, please submit it here by 6pm on Monday 10 April 2023.

Please have a look at the requirements for written evidence submissions and note the Committee cannot accept as evidence material that has been published elsewhere.
