Commentary

 

These Regulations are proposed to be made by the UK Government pursuant to section 8 (1) of, and paragraph 21 of Schedule 7 to, the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.

 

The purpose of the amendments is to correct deficiencies arising from the UK leaving the European Union in legislation relating to general food and feed safety and hygiene. The Regulations will make minimal, technical amendments to the retained direct EU law without making any material change in the level of protection given to human health or to the high standard of food and feed that consumers expect from both domestically produced and imported products.

 

The SI makes does not transfer any European Commission functions. There is no impact on the Welsh Ministers’ executive competence or the National Assembly’s legislative competence.

Legal advisers agree with the statement laid by the Welsh Government dated 20 March 2019 regarding the effect of these Regulations. The statement is comprehensive and contains all the necessary information.

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.

 

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