Plastics Bill

EDM number 1863 in 2017-19, proposed by Geraint Davies on 20/11/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Environmental protection and Waste management.

That this House notes that according to the UN there will be more plastic in the sea than fish by 2050; further notes that global fossil fuel subsidies amount to 5.3 trillion US dollars, more than the combined GDP of UK and France; notes that fossil fuel subsidies reduce the cost of plastic production; notes that council taxpayers also pay 90 per cent of UK plastic recycling costs; and calls on the Government to support the Plastics Bill to introduce a tax on plastics to cover the costs of recycling and a fiscal strategy designed to reduce, reuse and recycle plastic alongside annual plastics targets to encourage the use of sustainable alternatives.

This motion has been signed by a total of 46 MPs.
