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 make minor and technical amendments to relevant primary and retained direct European Union legislation, to address deficiencies in retained EU law arising from the UK’s departure from the EU.

 

The effect of the Regulations is to ensure that the legal framework in the area of food labelling will still function after exit day.

 

Legal Advisers agree with the statement laid by the Welsh Government dated 19 February 2019 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.
