Commenting on the news that the Scottish Environment Protection Agency will relax some regulations for the duration of the COVID19 crisis, Scottish Greens Environment Spokesperson Mark Ruskell MSP said:

“I welcome the pragmatic approach adopted by SEPA at this time of crisis, which recognises the pressure some small businesses are facing. It is vital that environmental and public health measures are always given prominence by business, and I’m sure the support offered by the regulator will be welcomed. While supporting businesses who are trying to do the right thing, it’s clear that SEPA will take a much harder line with any business that deliberately flouts environmental laws at this time. I urge SEPA to keep this situation under review and ensure that the biggest polluters continue to be thoroughly scrutinised.”
