Treasury policy on meeting recycling targets further call for evidence

10 May 2016

The Environmental Audit Committee calls for additional written evidence on HM Treasury’s contribution to meeting waste and recycling targets to help inform its inquiry into sustainability and HM Treasury. This follows on from its original call for evidence in December 2015.

At the end of 2015, the Committee launched a call for evidence into Sustainability and HM Treasury. The Committee also commissioned a report from the National Audit Office, looking at the extent to which the Spending Review process allows the Government to take well informed decisions in relation to sustainability.

As one part of the inquiry, the Committee intends to examine the contribution of Treasury policy towards meeting national and local waste and recycling targets.

The Committee is calling for written evidence on some or all of the following points in relation to recycling and waste management no later than 5pm on Friday 10 June 2016.

Organisations who have already submitted evidence to this inquiry are welcome to make a further submission if they wish, but are asked not to repeat points already made in earlier submissions.

Recycling and waste

  • Has Treasury policy played a positive role towards meeting national and local Government targets on recycling and waste? Are DEFRA and HM Treasury policies coherent?
  • What impact has Treasury policy had on the ability to finance recycling and waste projects over the course of the last Parliament?
  • What impact is current Treasury policy likely to have on the achievement of national and local recycling and waste targets?

The word limit is 1,500 words.
