star this property answer text <p>The UK has been influential in the development of the Smarter Rules for Safer Food regulations since their inception and we are broadly supportive of them. Our approach to these regulations is guided by our commitment to maintaining both the highest standards of biosecurity in the UK and frictionless trade at the border.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>If Parliament approves the deal negotiated by the Government, the EU Plant Health and Official Controls regulations will start to apply in the UK during the implementation period, on 14 December 2019. The Animal Health regulation will apply in the EU from April 2021, after the end of the proposed implementation period, so it would not apply directly to the UK. In this situation, while we support the overall principles, we would review the final details to determine our overall approach to alignment.</p><p> </p><p>If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, our approach on alignment will be determined by taking account of the final details of the three regulations, including the associated tertiary legislation which is still being negotiated.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The EU Equine Passport Regulation, (EU) No. 2015/262, applies directly to the UK. Secondary legislation supplements and makes provision for its enforcement. Defra was responsible for introducing The Equine Identification (England) Regulations 2018, SI 2018 No. 761, which came into force on 1 October 2018.</p><p> </p><p>Since then, the Equine Identification (England) (EU Exit) regulations 2018 (SI 2018 No. 1409) and The Equine (Records, Identification and Movement)(Amendment)(EU Exit) Regulations 2019 have been introduced in order to make the necessary technical changes to retained EU legislation so that equine records, movements and identification remain operable upon the UK leaving the EU.</p><p> </p> more like this

We have been clear that any future trade agreements must work for consumers, farmers, and businesses in the UK.

star this property answer text <p>Given over 80% of Defra’s agenda is affected by the UK’s departure from the EU, it is not possible to determine whether contracts relate solely to the UK leaving the EU. Accordingly, we are unable to estimate total expenditure on external consultants for work relating to the UK leaving the EU since 2016.</p><p>In September, the National Audit Office reported that Defra has specific contracts with BCG and PWC, up to the values of £9.5 million and £6.7 million respectively, to support the Department’s preparations for leaving the EU.</p> more like this
