Business Resource Efficiency and Waste Programme

Volume 468: debated on Wednesday 28 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what plans he has for the BREW programme; and if he will make a statement. (166462)

I have been asked to reply.

The Business Resource Efficiency and Resource (BREW) programme was set up to give £284 million additional landfill taxes back to business over three years (from April 2005 to March 2008) through funding for resource efficiency and waste projects.

Future funding of the BREW programme will be subject to future spending decisions which will be carefully balanced with other departmental priorities in tackling waste and climate change.
