Motion text

That this House supports Stop the Drop, the campaign by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and its President Bill Bryson to clean up litter and fly-tipping in the countryside; is concerned that, according to the Local Environmental Quality Survey for England, litter levels in many areas remain `unsatisfactory'; welcomes a recent fall in the number of fly-tipping incidents reported to local authorities, but notes that only one in 600 reported incidents of fly-tipping results in a prosecution; and calls on the Government to support high-profile, sustained national educational campaigns on litter, in partnership with industry, to introduce a national deposit scheme for drinks containers, including plastic and glass bottles and cans to back improved training and support for local councils to use the powers they have to punish those who drop litter and fly-tip, and to give councils more powers so that the registered keepers of vehicles, or the responsible person, can be fined if litter is thrown from a vehicle.
