Section 25 - Agri-food supply chains: requirement to provide information

161.Section 25 confers power on the Welsh Ministers to require certain persons to provide information about certain matters. The persons are those in, or closely connected with, an “agri-food supply chain”, and the information is about matters connected with any of the person’s activities connected with that supply chain, so far as those activities take place in Wales. “Agri-food supply chain” is defined in section 26.

162.Subsection (2) confers power on the Welsh Ministers to make regulations requiring persons of the same type to provide information of the same type.

163.Subsection (4) provides that a requirement under subsection (1) or subsection (2) may not be imposed on an individual in a supply chain if they are in the supply chain because they, or a member of their household, are the ultimate consumer of the end-product of the supply chain. The intention is to ensure that ordinary consumers cannot be subject to requirements of the type described.

164.Subsection (5) exempts from the requirements any information which is subject to legal privilege.

165.Subsection (6) provides that any requirement imposed under subsection (1) must be in writing.
