The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development(1) makes the following Regulations in exercise of the powers conferred by section 2(2) of, as read with paragraph 1A of Schedule 2 to, the European Communities Act (1972) (2).

It is a Department designated (3) for the purposes of section 2(2) of that Act (4) in relation to the common agricultural policy of the European Community.
