unstar this property answer text <p>We receive regular representations regarding the implications of the Paris Agreement for tackling climate change. In response, we are clear that the UK is committed to delivering the ambition of the Paris Agreement. The Climate Change Act committed the UK to reducing emissions by at least 80% compared to 1990 levels and we are phasing out the use of unabated coal for electricity generation by 2025. In response to the IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C, we have asked the Climate Change Committee to advise on whether further action is needed. No specific assessment has been made of the New South Wales decision noting that planning decisions for new mines are a matter for the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The right to declare an EU instrument invalid is something that can currently only be done by the Court of Justice of the European Union. In general, the Government considers that it does not make sense to create, for our domestic courts, an entirely new jurisdiction in which they are required to take on this function from the CJEU and consider, for example, questions around whether the relevant EU institution misused its powers or complied with the applicable procedural requirements.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>However, we recognise, for example, that in some circumstances, individuals and businesses may be individually affected by an EU instrument. For instance, a decision of an EU institution or body may be addressed directly to an individual or business.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>This power could be used to enable a right of challenge in domestic law to the validity of retained EU law in such circumstances. This could include provision enabling a challenge which would have been against an EU institution to proceed against a relevant UK public authority instead.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>We want to take the time to get this right and we will consider carefully the circumstances where it would be appropriate to enable challenges to be available in domestic law, and the best way of enabling those challenges to proceed. The Government is not planning to publish any draft regulations at Report Stage, but we are keen to listen to and take into account the views of Parliament on this important issue.</p>
