§ 17. Mr. Illsley
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what proposals she has to include the recovery and recycling of wood in the packaging waste regulations. 
§ Mr. Morley
From 1 January 2000 all packaging materials, including wood, were covered by the requirements of the Regulations. For wood there is a recovery obligation only. This can be met by recycling, composting or incineration with energy recovery.
