ABSTRACT
The author presents his opinion about the government's action to have an effective environmental policy. The author expresses doubt on the benefits that the recent government reshuffling and the creation of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) will have on environmental concerns. He cited several areas which, if achieved, would prove to him that the government is succeeding and these areas includes the replacement for Business Department and installation of meters.
