Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

My Department has enacted 57 Regulations since the beginning of 2018 and details of these are provided below.

By their nature, Regulations are inclined to impose a regulatory requirement on those that are the subject of those Regulations. The Deputy will appreciate that the vast majority of Regulations brought forward by this Department have, as their purpose, the protection of food safety, fishing, animal health and welfare and the environment. Consequently, the protection afforded by such Regulations assists many small and medium enterprises that operate in those sectors.
