Briefing - A ban on non-recyclable, non-compostable packaging

On 23rd January 2017, Parliament debated an e-petition which calls on Government to “ban all non-sustainable packaging on all products, with a grace period of 5 years to allow manufacturers to integrate viable, sustainable alternatives into their supply chains”. It has been signed by over 74,000 people. 

Barry Sheerman MP, Chair of the APSRG, spoke at this debate. The transcript of this speech is available here
