Motion text

That this House expresses concern at proposals within the Environmental Permitting Regulations which would charge schools to register for composting; recognises that the proposed £50 charge would serve as a deterrent for schools considering introducing composting; believes it would impact negatively on the environmental education of children in schools and undermine the Government's current efforts to encourage the public to dispose of their waste in an environmentally-friendly manner; and urges the Government to reverse its decision to charge a composting permit on anything which is outside the private individual's garden.
