The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA)
I have an active role in the EU Exit Environmental Regulations team, helping identify future legislative and policy direction for the department:
• Analysing existing environmental legislation and working out future direction of legislation post EU Exit;
• Preparing submissions and presentations to department directors and policy leads, as well as feeding into ministerial briefings
• Coordinating across policy areas, identifying both short and long term regulatory wins post EU Exit as well as highlighting inoperability amongst current legislation ;
• Acting as a central point of contact between lawyers, other governmental departments and devolved administrations in regards to environmental regulations and the EU Exit.
