QE AGM and EU Debate

HOW GREEN IS MY EU?

The Choice: To Stay or Go – What’s best for our Environment?

 

On Friday 29th April Quantock Eco hosted a debate on the environmental consequences of Brexit after their AGM.

 

 The purpose of the debate was to inform members about both the positive and negative influences that EU Membership has on our Environment to help you make up your minds on this aspect of the IN-OUT debate.  We  had three presentations, followed by an open discussion and Q & A session. The presentations were:

  • Ian Myers (Environment Agency) – An overview of EU Environmental Legislation

  • Ben Thorne (FWAG South West) – The impact of EU legislation on Farming and Wildlife

  • Philip Comer (Quantock Eco) - To Stay or Go – What is best for our Environment?

The presentations were all well received and thought provoking, and were followed by a lively and interesting discussion.

Copies of the presentations can be found here:

1. Overview of Environmental Legislation – Myers AGM 2016

2. Implications of leaving EU for British farming industry – Ben Thorne AGM 2016
