Departmental agencies and sponsored bodies[edit]

'Environmental Stewardship' is neither a departmental agency nor a sponsored body; it is an agri-environment scheme run by a departmental agency, i.e. Natural England, and I propose to delete it from the list of agencies and sponsored bodies. Is that OK everybody? --Malcolmxl5 07:23, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Defra regions[edit]

This section is not correct. Although Defra, its agencies and various bodies, have offices scattered around England, Defra does not have 'regional departments'. I suspect the editor is referring to Government Offices for the English Regions, which are the primary means by which policies for ten Government Departments, including Defra, are delivered in the English regions. See http://www.gos.gov.uk/national/. I propose to amend this section appropriately if that is OK. --Malcolmxl5 13:18, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Malcolmxl5, if you are absolutely sure of your facts, then be bold and proceed with revising that section. You don't need approval for correcting inaccurate statements. - mbeychok 16:17, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
Thanks. I have revamped the 'Defra regions' to describe by who policies are delivered rather than list regional offices (which was not correct in any case). I have also revamped the 'Departmental agencies and sponsored bodies' section. Malcolmxl5 02:30, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Local Air Quality Management (LAQM) programme[edit]

Part IV of the Environment Act 1995 and Part III of the Environment (Northern Ireland) Order 2002 placed a statutory duty on all local authorities throughout the UK to periodically review and assess air quality within their area. This includes consideration of current and likely future air quality against air quality objectives, established for the protection of human health, set out in the Air Quality Strategy for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (AQS). Atmospheric dispersion modelling plays a key role in the review and assessment process.

Local authorities work towards achieving the AQS objectives that have been prescribed in regulation through the Local Air Quality Management (LAQM) program. The LAQM program is under the aegis of Defra. To assist and support the local authorities in their review and assessment work, Defra issued an LAQM Technical Guidance document in February 2003.[1]

Defra also retained the services of the Casella Stanger consultancy company (now a part of the Bureau Veritas Group) to establish and manage a Dispersion Modelling Helpdesk[2] to further support the local authorities in their work.

Comment I moved this text from the main page. Defra is about many issues but this is one of the smaller ones (for want of a better phrase) and its presence on the page gives it undue weight in my view. --Malcolmxl5 (talk) 21:53, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Infobox[edit]

The Infobox lists "Department executive", which is a really weird title for a permanent secretary. Where did this come from? Deipnosophista (talk) 21:11, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Badgers[edit]

Am I the only one to find it odd that more than two thirds of this article’s lead are devoted to a North Somerset and Gloucestershire trial badger culls? 62.244.71.254 (talk) 14:43, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
