answer text <p>The majority of environmental matters are devolved in Northern Ireland. Protecting our environment in Northern Ireland for future generations is a hugely important issue and highlights why I am determined to restore an Executive at the earliest opportunity. For environmental matters which the UK Government has responsibility, we are working hard to deliver on our ambition to leave the environment in a better state than in which we inherited it. We will continue to work with the Devolved Administrations to develop and support environmental improvement measures across the whole of the UK.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Trade promotion is a devolved matter. The UK Government shares the ambitions of Invest NI and Tourism NI in promoting Northern Ireland as a place to invest, visit and do business. I welcome the ongoing work that is happening across a number of bodies in Northern Ireland to maximise the economic contribution of the 148<sup>th</sup> Open Championship.
