Waste Management: Prisons

Volume 475: debated on Friday 9 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what representations his Department has received from local authorities on Schedule 2 waste obligations to collect rubbish from prisons without imposing a charge. (202944)

Since January 2008 DEFRA has received four letters from local authorities and one from the Local Government Association (LGA) asking the Government to consider the right of Schedule 2 waste producers to free waste disposal.

The letter from the LGA and my reply to it have both been published on the LGA's website.
