Landfill Tax

Volume 506: debated on Monday 22 February 2010

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) how much is expected to be raised through landfill tax in 2010-11; (316624)

(2) whether he plans to review the criteria under which projects can apply for funding under the landfill tax credit scheme;

(3) how many applications from each constituency have been (a) received and (b) granted for funding under the landfill tax credit scheme in each year since 1996; and how much funding has been provided to successful applicants in each constituency in each of those years.

Estimates of landfill tax revenues are set out in chapter A, table A1, of the 2009 Budget publication “Building Britain’s Future”.

There are no plans for a specific review of the objects of the landfill communities fund (known as the landfill tax credit scheme up to 2006). However, the fund (including its qualifying objects) is kept under regular review as part of the Budget process.

Neither HM Revenue and Customs, nor the fund regulator, ENTRUST, hold information on applications or funding broken down by parliamentary constituency.
