EU welfare progress threat
Compassion made a submission to the Animal Health and Welfare and Food Safety Report published by the UK government on July 22nd. The Report considered the roles of EU and UK legislation and whether the current “balance of competences” is about right or needs to be changed. The Report defines “competence” as “everything deriving from EU law that affects what happens in the UK”.
