Motion text

That this House notes that drinks containers including plastic and glass bottles, aluminium cans, cartons, pouches and coffee cups are a blight on Britain’s beaches, and that a 2019 Marine Conservation Society survey recorded more than 500 litter items per 100 meters of coastline; recognises that containers of all materials and sizes are littered and contribute to the waste crisis; further notes that countries with deposit return schemes see recycling rates in excess of 90 percent; strongly supports the introduction of a Deposit Return Scheme for England, Wales and Northern Ireland incorporating as wide a selection of materials as possible; and calls on the Government to follow the examples of other nations and introduce an all-in scheme in 2023.
