Environmental themes for the UK Presidency

The UK is in the Presidency of the EC Council of Ministers until the end of the year. It faces a formidable environmental agenda. The dominant themes will include a new effort to integrate environmental considerations into other EC policies, and ways of securing the effective implementation of EC laws by the Member States. The UK also looks set to play a central role in the debate on how the new subsidiarity doctrine will affect both existing and future Community environmental legislation.
