Animal health and welfare and food safety report published

23 Jul 2013 01:53 PM

The UK Government has published the first set of reports under the European Union Balance of Competences Review. These reports aim to deepen public understanding of the UK’s relationship with the EU.

The reports draw on evidence submitted to provide a wide ranging and balanced analysis of the EU’s ability to act, the impact that EU action has on the UK national interest and future challenges.

The Food Standards Agency and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs worked on the Animal Health and Welfare and Food Safety report. This covers food safety, including feed, food labelling and food compositional standards. A separate report on health, also published today, covers nutrition and related matters.

The reports and submitted evidence can be found below:
