Food standards and environmental protection in danger from repeal of 'retained EU law'

02 October 2022

Highland Environment Forum has raised the alarm about the introduction of a UK bill to revoke much of the EU law and regulation retained in UK law after Brexit.

There is particular concern over legislation covering areas such as food standards, environment and wildlife protection and animal welfare regulation.

RSPB Scotland is running a campaign to get people to write to their MSPs, but the Scottish Constitution Secretary Angus Robertson has already written to Jacob Rees-Mogg, protesting in strong terms against the introduction of the bill.
