Landfill Tax

Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 11 October 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much the Government received in landfill tax collected from local authorities in the most recent year for which figures are available. (89481)

It is not possible using landfill tax receipts data to determine how much revenue is received from local authorities. This is because registered landfill site operators pay the tax to HM Revenue and Customs and pass on the cost to their customers through the disposal charges they set. The origin of the landfill waste is not recorded on the tax return.
