Motion of Regret on a Statutory Instrument

Lord Whitty to move, as an amendment to the motion in the name of Lord Gardiner of Kimble, at the end insert "but this House regrets that the draft Regulations fail to fulfil the Prime Minister’s intention to maintain the United Kingdom’s participation in the European Chemicals Agency, which would have avoided (1) the duplication of registrations and the consequential increased costs to United Kingdom manufacturers, downstream users and importers, (2) the duplication of testing procedures, including animal testing, and (3) the pressure on the resources and expertise of the Health and Safety Executive and the environment agencies, which could increase the risks to United Kingdom citizens’ health, and to our environment; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to make continued United Kingdom participation in the European Chemicals Agency and REACH an objective in negotiations with the European Union".
