EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations revoke a number of instruments relating to countryside access and dairy produce quotas.

Regulation 2 revokes three instruments relating to countryside access, which are spent or otherwise superseded. Two of those instruments are revoked only in relation to Wales, having previously been revoked in relation to England.

Regulation 3 revokes eleven instruments relating to dairy produce quotas on 31st March 2019. The Dairy Produce Quotas (General Provisions) Regulations 2002 (S.I. 2002/458) contain general provisions concerning dairy produce quotas in the United Kingdom and are revoked in relation to England and Wales. The other instruments contain provision relating to dairy produce quotas on English or Welsh holdings and are capable of having cross border effect as the holdings of producers in England and Wales may comprise land in other parts of the United Kingdom. The instruments are revoked in relation to England or Wales, respectively.

An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private, voluntary or public sector is foreseen.

An Explanatory Memorandum is available, in relation to England, alongside the instrument at www.legislation.gov.uk , and in relation to Wales, from the Economy, Skills and Natural Resources Department of the Welsh Government.
