Eustice promises coherence between Environment and Agriculture Bills

Environment secretary George Eustice has confirmed that the proposed system for environmental land management will be tied into plans for local nature recovery strategies as set out in the Environment Bill.

Speaking during the second reading of the bill in parliament on Wednesday, Eustice said that the government wanted “to make sure” that the environmental land management scheme - the key new farming subsidy mechanism set out in the Agriculture Bill - would be “consistent with the local nature recovery strategies” required under the Environment Bill. 

He added: “The design of our future environmental land management scheme will have a local component.”
