Defra is monitoring plastic bag charging plans and schemes in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland


In a House of Lords debate (10 October), Lord Judd asked “Her Majesty’s Government what action they are taking to bring policy and legislation on single-use plastic bags in England into line with policy and legislation in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales”.

Resource Management Minister Lord De Mauley responded: “We are monitoring developments in other parts of the UK, including the results from the introduction of the charging scheme in Wales, together with Northern Ireland’s plan to launch a charge from April 2013. We are also interested in the outcome of the Scottish consultation on a charge.”
