Audit Commission: Internet

Volume 504: debated on Friday 29 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if he will ensure that the Comprehensive Area Assessment Oneplace website includes data on the frequency of collection of household waste by local authorities. (313811)

This is an operational matter for the Audit Commission, and I will ask the chief executive of the Audit Commission to write to the hon. Member direct.

Letter from Steve Bundred:

Your Parliamentary Question outlined above has been passed to me to reply.

The Oneplace website currently includes performance indicators on the amount of waste collected, recycled and landfilled as well as a range of measures of residents' satisfaction with these services.

The Audit Commission is discussing with DEFRA the availability of reliable data on the frequency of household waste and recycling collection with a view to including this data on the website as soon as possible.

A copy of this letter will be placed in Hansard.
