June news letter

In our June newsletter we report on new legislation concerning plant protection and, for Wales only, waste.  We also report on amendments to energy, planning, waste (N.Ireland only) and water law. We bring to your attention DEFRA’s consultation on an environmental land management scheme and the further delay to the Environment Bill 2019-21.  HSE warn of potential hazards associated with the recommissioning of pressure systems after shutdown and there is learning applicable to a wide range of activities highlighted by a rail incident.  There are three prosecutions of note.
