Commentary

 

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

 

These Regulations make a number of minor, technical amendments to ensure consistency between the below listed instruments and other EU Exit SIs, so as to ensure the effectiveness and continuity of UK legislation, after the UK leaves the EU.

 

·         The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Environmental Impact Assessment) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (S.I. 2019/25).

·         The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (S.I. 2019/39).

·         The Waste (Miscellaneous Amendments) (EU Exit) (No. 2) Regulations 2019 (S.I. 2019/188).

·         The Waste (Miscellaneous Amendments) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (S.I. 2019/620).

 

Legal Advisers agree with the statement laid by the Welsh Government dated 3 June 2019 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.
