Motion text

That this House looks forward to the forthcoming publication of a Natural Environment White Paper; notes that this is the first White Paper of its kind in 20 years; recognises that biodiversity is in crisis, with 45 per cent. of important habitats and 29 per cent. of priority species declining or lost; calls on the Government to make a clear commitment through the White Paper to halt biodiversity loss, restore the UK's natural environment and connect people with nature; believes the White Paper must include key indicators to track annual progress toward measurable outcomes; further believes these indicators must cover the condition of common and threatened wildlife, the condition of important wildlife areas and levels of public engagement; and calls on other Government departments to share responsibility in committing to a strong and effective White Paper which helps the Government meet its commitment to be the greenest Government ever.
