Commentary

 

These Regulations are proposed to be made by the UK Government pursuant to section 8 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.

These Regulations are being made in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies arising from the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.

 

These Regulations amend the Blood Safety and Quality Regulations 2005 (S.I. 2005/50) to ensure that blood safety and quality legislation will continue to function after exit day.

 

Legal Advisers agree with the statement laid by the Welsh Government dated 22 November 2018 regarding the effect of these Regulations.

The above summary and the content of the Explanatory Memorandum to these Regulations confirm their effect and the extent to which these Regulations would enact new policy in devolved areas.

Legal Advisers do not consider that any significant issues arise under paragraph 8 of the Memorandum on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill and the Establishment of Common Frameworks in relation to these Regulations.

 

Legal Advisers have not identified any legal reason to seek a consent motion under Standing Order 30A.10 in relation to these Regulations.
