Select Committee on European Union Fortieth Report


Letter from the Chairman to Lord Bach, Minister for Sustainable Farming and Food, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

  Thank you for your Explanatory Memorandum of 9 January which Sub-Committee D (Environment and Agriculture) considered at its meeting on 1 February.

  The Committee considers it essential that the revised sustainable development strategy should propose specific targets and implementation dates for achieving progress. It is important that the EU builds on the progress made already by taking concrete action to meet its sustainable development objectives.

  The Committee decided to retain the proposal under scrutiny pending receipt of the Regulatory Impact Assessment.
