Plastic Waste

EDM number 908 in 2017-19, proposed by Geraint Davies on 06/02/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Manufacturing industries, Marine environment, Pollution, Taxation 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, more than the combined GDP of UK and France; notes that fossil fuel subsidies reduce the cost of plastic production; notes that taxpayers also pay 90 per cent of UK plastic recycling costs; and calls on the Government to introduce a tax on plastics to offset the fossil fuel subsidy, cover the costs of recycling and offset the environmental damage of plastics and to therefore encourage the use of sustainable alternatives and reduce the cost of recycling to the taxpayer.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
