Fly-tipping: Databases

Volume 460: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many fly-tipping incidents were reported through the Flycapture database by each local authority in their most recent returns. (138255)

As it is quite lengthy, I am arranging for copies of the information requested to be placed in the Library of the House.

Data for 2006-2007 have not yet been finalised, but will be available in the summer.

Data reflect the particular circumstances of the local authority area. As a result of Best Value Performance Indicator 199d on fly-tipping, local authorities are now being monitored for their performance in reducing overall incident numbers and increasing the amount of enforcement activity, year on year. Flycapture was always intended to be used as a management information tool to help target action, rather than to produce ‘league tables’.
