    1. Reviewing and revising plans: interim targets(1) On the first review of the first environmental improvement plan, the Secretaryof State must revise the plan so as to—(a) set at least one interim target in respect of each relevant matter, and(b) secure that there is at all times, until the end of the 5 year periodbeginning with the relevant date, an interim target set by the plan inrespect of each relevant matter

      so actually, the first of the annual EIP review sets one milestone re headline targets? Very unclear here if an interim target aims to be a target to achieve within that 5 year EIP period

    2. 15 Environmental monitoring(1) The Secretary of State must make arrangements for obtaining such data aboutthe natural environment as the Secretary of State considers appropriate for thepurpose of monitoring—(a) whether the natural environment is, or particular aspects of it are,improving in accordance with the current environmental improvementplan,(b) the progress being made towards meeting any targets set undersections 1 and 2, and(c) the progress being made towards meeting any interim targets set undersection 10 and 13

      This seems useful - SoS must publish in parliament outline of monitoring arrangements 4 months after Env bill passed, then publish data obtained under that. Might be worth checking on what role parliament play here and the timescales involved in publishing data?

    3. (2) In considering the matters in subsection (1)(b) the Secretary of State mustconsider the progress that has been made towards meeting—(a) any targets set under sections 1 and 2, and(b) any interim targets set under sections 10 and 13.(3) In considering the matters in subsection (1)(c) the Secretary of State mustconsider whether Her Majesty’s Government should take further or differentsteps (compared to those set out in the old plan) towards meeting any targetsset under sections 1 and 2

      Surely 3 should cover interim targets too?

    4. Before setting or revising an interim target in respect of a matter the Secretaryof State must be satisfied that meeting the target, or the revised target, wouldmake an appropriate contribution towards meeting the target under section 1or 2 in respect of that matter

      SoS only authority on appropriateness of targets?

    5. If as a result of a review the Secretary of State revises the environmentalimprovement plan, the Secretary of State must lay before Parliament—(a) the revised environmental improvement plan, and(b) a statement explaining the revisions and the reasons for them.(7) If as a result of a review the Secretary of State does not revise the environmentalimprovement plan, the Secretary of State must lay before Parliament astatement explaining that and the reasons for it

      so no mechanism to force the SoS to lay a revised plan? just to explain they won't?

    6. The first review of a subsequent environmental improvement plan must becompleted before the end of the 5 year period beginning with the day on whichit replaces the previous plan (see section 12(4)).

      how far before?

    7. Environmental improvement plans(1) The Secretary of State must prepare an environmental improvement plan.

      EIPs - won't apply to Wales

    1. You see, Paul, whether you have misidentified your Self as “ego,” or whether you have correctly identified yourSelf as Fourth-dimensional Man, your Being has effortlessly been being Itself totally, perfectly, and successfully by being rather than “doing.” Anything ego has thought it has done was pure nonsense.

      Quote - Anything ego has thought it has done was pure nonsense.

      Being is being Itself perfectly regardless of how I have identified myself, by being not doing.

      .t:EIP - everything is perfect.
