To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make a statement on his Department's plans for the promotion of recycling of waste materials.
My Department encourages the economic reclamation and recycling of waste in three principal ways.
|The number of inward investment projects: proportions of each year's total (in percentage terms) for each United Kingdom region|
|Yorkshire and Humberside||15||11||4||5||4||2||4||3||7|
Note: Some non-addition due to rounding errors.
There is an awareness campaign through a video, literature, conferences and other meetings. The issues and opportunities in individual sectors are taken up through specialist conferences and meetings. These have covered or will cover glass, paper, plastics, oil and the role of voluntary collectors. The Department's Warren Spring laboratory carries out research and development work on recycling problems and provides technical advice through its recycling advisory unit.
