Title Does anyone actually know how many EU retained environmental laws there are? Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet ENDS Report Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 27/02/2023 Description "Speaking at a webinar held by University College London in January, Viviane Gravey, senior lecturer in the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics at Queen’s University in Belfast, said that the bill was very complex in the context of devolution, because the devolved settlements were not the same, and laws had not been transposed in the same way across the UK.
The governments of Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland are approaching the REUL bill mapping exercise in different ways, Gravey said. Some work was underway in Northern Ireland up until the autumn when caretaker ministers, in place since the DUP effectively blocked the formation of a new government following the May election, ceased to hold office."

Some may see that as more democratic, she notes, and there is certainly the potential for rules to be enhanced and improved.
However, in gaining the ability to be more nimble and change regulations more frequently you lose the “ratchet effect” on environmental regulation, she says. You rely more heavily on political will so there’s potential to “wreck things on a much bigger scale than is the case at EU level”, Gravey warns. She isn’t convinced the government has fully “woken up” to the climate and biodiversity emergencies.
