(21 June 2019) Client Earth announced a High Court challenge to the UK’s government Brexit legislation, more specifically over parts of a statutory instrument changing the habitat and species conservation regulation. This would give new powers to Ministers, allowing them to “alter and reduce standards for protected sites”. Stakeholders argue this change would represent a breach of the “green Brexit” promised by the UK government.

Dr Tom West from Client Earth fears government will continue using its power in this manner, thus requiring improved scrutiny from all fronts.
