To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry within what timeframe he expects to establish a scheme for individual producer responsibility. (139284)

There is currently no timetable for the introduction of individual producer responsibility (IPR) in the UK under the WEEE Regulations.

The Government remain committed to the principles of IPR and will be establishing a WEEE Advisory Body in the autumn. As part of its remit the advisor body will be asked to examine IPR and make recommendations on how it can be introduced in the UK.
