Commentary

 

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

 

These Regulations help to ensure that the veterinary medicines framework continues to operate effectively once we leave the EU, and that the UK can continue to operate a residues surveillance programme covering the same objectives. The changes made by the Regulations are being made to ensure that retained EU legislation and the domestic legislation enforcing it continue to operate effectively.

 

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.
