The Scottish Government has now published its eagerly anticipated proposals for environmental principles and governance in Scotland in the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Continuity) (Scotland) Bill. This Bill does three things. Firstly, it establishes a broad power for the Scottish Government to make regulations that match or implement new EU measures. Secondly, it gives legal status to key environmental principles derived from EU law. Finally, it establishes Environmental Standards Scotland as a body to monitor compliance with and respond to ineffective implementation of environmental law in Scotland.
