Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations, which apply only to Wales, amend the Seeds (Fees) Regulations 1985 (as amended). The amendments are necessary as a result of the Fodder Plants Seeds (Amendment) (Wales) Regulations 2001 (S.I. 2001/3665 (W.297)) which removed white lupin, narrow-leaved lupin (blue lupin), yellow lupin, Hungarian vetch, common vetch, hairy vetch and lucerne from the definition of “Certified Seed” in the Fodder Plant Seeds Regulations 1993 and included them instead within the definition of “Certified Seed of the First Generation”. The amendments are required to ensure that the descriptions of categories of seeds for which fees are prescribed in Schedule 2 to the Regulations reflect these changes.

(1)

1964 c. 14; section 16 was amended by the European Communities Act 1972 (c. 68), section 4(1) and Schedule 4, paragraphs 5(1), (2) and (3); see section 38(1) (as amended by S.I. 1978/272) for a definition of “the Minister”; the functions of the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food under the Plant Varieties and Seeds Act 1964 were, so far as they are exercisable in relation to Wales, transferred to the Secretary of State by the Transfer of Functions (Wales) (No. 1) Order 1978 (S.I. 1978/272); and under article 2(a) and Schedule 1 to the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672) these functions, so far as exercisable in relation to Wales, were transferred to the National Assembly for Wales.

(2)

S.I. 1985/981; relevant amending instruments are S.I. 1990/610, 1999/1553, 1999/1865 and 2001/2533 (W.210).
