Nutrition (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL12073, tabled on 5 December 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to consider extending the consultation period on proposed amendments to the Nutrition (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 to allow sufficient time for stakeholders to provide meaningful feedback.

Proposals addressed by the Nutrition (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 public consultation are predominantly technical in nature, simply changing European Union-specific references so that relevant legislation remains effective when the United Kingdom is no longer a member state.

Plans outlined in the consultation would therefore provide continuity and assurance for business and consumers, as they seek to mirror existing European systems domestically as far as is practically possible.

As the duration of a consultation is informed by the nature and impact of the proposals we consider a relatively short consultation period appropriate, and therefore have no plans to extend its length.
