    Abstract

    ... examines current environmental policy in the United Kingdom and considers the role of law in the implementation of that policy. The first part deals with the relationship between environmental law and policy, including the scope of adminmistrative discretion, the application of the 'polluter-pays principle' and the introduction of integrated pollution control. It also analyses the social structure of environmentl law and evaluates UK policy in the context both of the European Community and the international arena. The second part is devoted to detailed case studies, assessing the environmental policy of the United Kingdom in the important subject areas of land use, water, energy, transport, agriculture, waste management, and conservation, chosen because they demonstrate the problems of a system that lacks a fully integrated environmental policy.
