Responding to Government’s fifteenth defeat on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill on a cross-party amendment to maintain strong environmental principles, Leader of the Liberal Democrats in the House of Lords Lord Newby said: 

"The Government was set to take a sledgehammer to environmental protections, but today’s cross-party amendment put a stop to it.

"Ministers must now listen to the Lords. Anything less than a commitment to the highest standards on the environment will not be accepted by the public."
