What is the remit of the newly established Interim Environmental Governance Secretariat (IEGS) and what powers does it have to investigate complaints against public authorities? 

On 19 November 2020, the government announced the establishment of the IEGS, a temporary body designed to provide interim environmental governance from 1 January 2021 until the permanent Office for Environmental Protection (OEP) becomes operational.

Angus also provides information on who can make complaints to the IEGS, and what kind of complaints can be submitted, as well as how long the interim body is expected to remain operational before being superseded by the OEP.
