In our April 2020 News Letter we report on three new items of legislation, all concerned with the control of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and five amendments to legislation. There is no new relevant EU legislation. With sittings of Parliament suspended no progress has been made on The Environment Bill 2019-21. We note two consultations. We also report on temporary arrangements, made in response to the COVID-19, by the HSE and the Environment Agency. There were no prosecutions made during the month.
We cover how we present new and amended legislation.
