Bishop of St Albans asks about the retained EU Law Dashboard (REUL)

The Bishop of St Albans received the following written answer on 5th July 2022:

The Lord Bishop of St Albans asked Her Majesty’s Government why (1) the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 (No. 1012), and (2) the Conservation of Habitats and Species (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (No. 579), are not included in the Cabinet Office’s Retained EU Law dashboard.

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: The REUL dashboard presents an authoritative catalogue of REUL, not a complete list of REUL. To ensure the integrity of the data published, Defra undertook a quality assurance process. In the case of retained law relating to habitats, this information completed the quality assurance process only after Cabinet Office’s deadline for publication, so was not able to be included in the initial data. When the dashboard is next updated, this legislation will be added to the data set.
