On 3 February I announced I would be shortly withdrawing and re-laying a new version of the draft Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (Wales) Regulations 2021 (external link). This was in order to address a small, but important, error in the original version laid on 27 January.

I am pleased to announce today these regulations have been re-laid and will be debated on the 23 March 2021. This delay is not anticipated to affect the coming into force date of these regulations which is the 10th September 2021.
