The Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) is inviting additional views on the Treasury’s contribution to meeting waste and recycling targets.

It follows an initial call for evidence into sustainability and the Treasury in December last year as well as an audit of the Spending Review for environmental impact.

It is seeking more views on whether Chancellor George Osborne’s policy has played a positive role towards meeting government targets on recycling and the impact it has had on financing recycling projects over the course of the last Parliament.

The EAC also wants to know if the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) and Treasury’s policies are coherent and the impact they are likely to have on achieving the government’s recycling targets.

It is accepting evidence until 9th June.
