Rejected petition Defy UK legislation that allows Westminster to force food and environmental standards on Wales.

Wales should follow Scotland in possibly defying the proposed UK legislation that allows Westminster to set food and environmental standards as the proposals could lead to Wales having to accept products and standards that our country does not want. The UK government is seeking to undermine Wales’ ability to create its own laws with this new proposed legislation.

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

As the petition refers to, the UK Agriculture Bill is the responsibility of the UK Parliament. You can find more information about the legislative consent process relating to this Bill in the Senedd here:
