Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Caroline Spelman, responded to an Urgent question asked by Shadow Minister for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Jamie Reed, on the Government's waste review.
The Government launched the waste review in July 2010. The review looked at all aspects of waste policy and delivery in England including household and business wate and recycling collection arrangements.
Watch and read the Urgent question and the views expressed by MPs on Parliament TV and in Commons Hansard. Also read the Written Ministerial Statement made by the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
Further information on the Government's waste review, including a copy of the review, can be found on the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs website.
Urgent questions are asked at the end of Question Time. If something has happened, normally a matter of public importance, which an MP believes requires an immediate answer from a government minister, they may apply to the Speaker to ask an urgent question.
If the Speaker agrees, the question will be asked at the end of Question Time.
