To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much from the Aggregates Levy Fund was allocated to the fund’s objective of (a) minimising the demand for primary aggregates, (b) promoting environmentally friendly aggregates extraction on land, (c) promoting environmentally friendly aggregates extraction in the marine environment, (d) promoting environmentally friendly transport of aggregates, (e) addressing the environmental impacts of past aggregate extraction and (f) compensating local communities for the impacts of aggregates extraction in each year since the fund was established. (143624)

I have been asked to reply.

The Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund’s four objectives are:

1. Minimising the demand for primary aggregates

2. Promoting environmentally friendly extraction and transport

3. Addressing the environmental impacts of past aggregates extraction

4. Compensating local communities for the impacts of aggregates extraction

The fourth objective was added in April 2005.

The figures in the following table show the approximate allocations between the four objectives in each of the financial years the fund has been running.
