Fly-tipping: Greater London

Volume 469: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many incidents of fly tipping were recorded in each London borough in each year since 1998; and what the estimated cost was of dealing with these incidents in each borough in each year. (172493)

I have arranged for a table to be placed in the Library of the House showing the number of fly-tipping incidents and prosecutions recorded in each local authority by local authorities on Flycapture for 2004-05, 2005-06 and 2006-07. Data are only available from 2004 onwards.

Following the release of the 2006-07 Flycapture statistics on 9 October 2007, this information has been sent to all MPs and has been placed in the Printed Paper Office.

It is also available to download electronically on DEFRA’s Flycapture website at:
