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 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018.

 

These regulations provides the Secretary of State and the Devolved Administrations with a replacement power to make justification decisions in the form of regulations in respect of classes and types of practices involving ionising radiation for the purposes of the Justification of Practices Involving Ionising Radiation Regulations 2004. The  powers to make regulations for this purpose will no longer be available once the European Communities Act 1972 is repealed. The Regulations do not enact any new policy.

 

Legal Advisers agree with the statement laid by the Welsh Government dated 28 November 2018 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.

 

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