That this House notes that according to the UN there will be more plastic in the sea than fish by 2050; further notes that global fossil fuel subsidies amount to 5.3 trillion US dollars, more than the combined GDP of UK and France; notes that fossil fuel subsidies reduce the cost of plastic production; notes that council taxpayers also pay 90 per cent of UK plastic recycling costs; and calls on the Government to support the Plastics Bill to introduce a tax on plastics to cover the costs of recycling and a fiscal strategy designed to reduce, reuse and recycle plastic alongside annual plastics targets to encourage the use of sustainable alternatives.
