Answer both questions. Each question is worth 50% of the overall mark. The overall word

Question 1
Directive 2020/323 (fictitious) requires each Member State to ‘take all necessary measures
to ensure that all public places have appropriate safeguards against COVID symptoms.’
The Directive requires each Member State to ensure its implementation by June 2020.
Portugal has implemented the Directive 2020/323 in the ‘COVID Safeguards Order’
(fictitious) which came into force in May 2020.
In relation to shops, the COVID Safeguards Order provides that all tills and front desks must
have a protective barrier in front of them. In February 2020, an elderly lady by the name of
Aline goes to a pharmacy to buy medicine for her upset stomach. She is hearing-impaired.
She attempts to communicate with the pharmacists but finds it difficult because there is a
protective barrier in front of the till. She believes that she has been given medicine for her
stomach and purchases it. When she reaches home she takes the medicine but it makes
her stomach worse. She realises that the pharmacist gave her the wrong medicine. She is
now in an even worse condition than before.
Advise Aline by discussing all the three possible effects of EU law in the national
system by advising on the most likely outcome of this case.
Question 2
‘Brexit is an example of the rise of nationalism that is reminiscent of the state of Europe
after World War II. There is a movement to withdraw from the European Union amongst
Member States in order to protect their sovereignty.’ Critically discuss this assertion.
