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.

 

This instrument addresses failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies arising from the withdrawal of the UK from the EU. It deals with corrections that are technical in nature and do not make any significant policy changes, instead corrections adjust the retained EU Regulations to incorporate new (agreed) terms to ensure the existing EU  European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) and European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) programmes will continue to be funded for the remainder of the 2014 to 2020 programme, if there is no deal. This SI is the second UK correcting Statutory Instrument included as part of the wider package to correcting the CAP.

Legal Advisers agree with the statement laid by the Welsh Government dated 26 November 2018 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.

 

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