Outgoing UKELA chair, Daniel Lawrence, opens the session exploring recent changes in the approach to environmental regulation and enforcement, with speakers Richard Macrory, Peter Kellett and David Wolfe.
Tom Mosedale of Defra spoke on the Marine Bill and Andrew Dobb of the RSPB asked whether current UK nature conservation law provides the right balance of rights and responsibilities?
