NEWS: Retained EU Law (REUL) Act published 

Thanks to the Baby Feeding law Group for alerting us to this news

Following months of deliberation and considerations from the Houses of Lords and Commons respectively, the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (REUL Bill) has been given Royal Assent and was passed into an Act, the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Act 2023 on 29 June 2023. One purpose of this Act is to revoke certain retained EU law through the sunsetting of legislation. All legislation to be “sunsetted” (revoked) is listed in Schedule 1 of the Act, but of note, none of the relevant legislation relating to the composition, labelling, and marketing of foods for infants and young children is included in this list. This means that all legislation relating to foods for infants and young children will be retained. Government departments will now create secondary legislation where necessary to effect changes and these will be consulted on in due course.
