Watson, Michael (2005) The enforcement of environmental law: civil or criminal penalties? Environmental Law and Management, 17 (1). pp. 3-6. ISSN 1067-6058
Abstract

In the United Kingdom, regulatory bodies have traditionally
relied on the use of the criminal law to protect the
environment. Although the officials employed by these
agencies may have regarded it as the ‘last resort’,
prosecution – or at least the threat of prosecution – has
always been in the background. ‘Civil’ or ‘administrative’
sanctions have rarely been used. This situation may be
about to change.
