Waste Management: Landfill

Volume 691: debated on Wednesday 2 May 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the total amount of landfill tax credit currently held by environmental bodies; and what percentage of this has been held for more than two years. [HL3421]

Since 1996, the total value of landfill tax credits given to environmental bodies in the Landfill Communities Fund is £876 million, of which £175 million is currently held by these bodies, including £68 million (under 8 per cent of the total credits given out) which has been held for more than two years. HMRC is working with LCF stakeholders to ensure that the fund offers value for money and continues to deliver beneficial projects to local communities.
