Briefing: Agriculture (Retained EU Law and Data) (Scotland) Bill – Stage 2

16th June 2020

A briefing setting out LINK’s support for amendments lodged at Stage 2 of the Agriculture (Retained EU Law and Data) (Scotland) Bill.

Scottish Environment LINK considers this Bill to be crucial to providing a smooth transition for farmers and crofters as the UK leaves the European Union as well as responding to the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. At Stage 1 we noted a number of key areas where the Bill could be strengthened to allow farmers and crofters to plan for their future activity and to set out a clear direction for the agricultural sector as it responds to the continued loss of nature and impacts of climate change.

This briefing highlights the amendments at Stage 2 that if passed will provide greater certainty for the sector in the years ahead while delivering for the environment.
