Welsh Assembly Government : Prosecutions

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 9 September 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what discussions he has with the Welsh Assembly Government on its powers to postpone prosecutions brought under the Plastic Materials and Articles in Contact with Food (Wales) Regulations 2009; and what mechanisms are in place for monitoring the use of those powers. (288061)

There are no provisions in these regulations to enable the postponement of prosecutions for offences under food contact materials legislation. Therefore, there have been no discussions with the Welsh Assembly Government on this issue.
