Commentary

These Regulations are proposed to be made by the UK Government under section 8(1) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.

The purpose of these Regulations is to ensure that there will continue to be a functioning statute book on exit day which maintains continuity in relation to novel food policy and legislation.  Novel food is any food or food ingredient which was not commonly available in the EU before 15 May 1997.

 

Legal Advisers agree with the statement laid by the Welsh Government dated 5 February 2019 regarding the effect of these Regulations.

 

The above summary and the content of the Explanatory Memorandum to these Regulations confirm their effect. 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.
