HC Deb 20 June 2000 vol 352 c168W
Mr. Pickthall

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will ring-fence landfill tax for waste recycling and reduction. [126804]

Mr. Timms

I have no plans to do so. However, the recently published Waste Strategy announced that the Government propose to use the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme to help deliver an increase in recycling, particularly of household waste.
