Food: Welsh Meat Industry

Volume 704: debated on Tuesday 7 October 2008

My right honourable friend the Secretary of Sate for Wales has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

I am pleased to inform the House that the proposed National Assembly for Wales (Legislative Competence) (Agriculture and Rural Development) Order dealing with the Welsh red meat industry has been laid today as Command Paper Cm 7474. Copies of this can be found in the Printed Paper Office and will be placed in the Library from 11 am. I have written to the House of Lords Constitutional Committee and to the House of Commons Welsh Affairs Select Committee to request they undertake pre-legislative scrutiny.
