Call for evidence on Treasury policy on meeting recycling target

This consultation is now closed. 

The Environmental Audit Committee is calling 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.

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 both or either recycling or the autumn statement no later than 5pm on Friday 9 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.


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

The word limit is 1,500 words.
