The Chancellor launched a call for evidence at the Spring Statement to examine how charges or changes to the tax system could tackle the problems associated with single-use plastic waste.  As part of the government’s call for evidence, the Treasury is examining different solutions to reducing single-use plastic waste across a variety of sectors. The Treasury has contacted CPA to ensure that the construction product sector makes its views known through this Call for Evidence.

CPA would like to hear from FIS members about any views and concerns they might have around potential policies. As well as plastic packaging this could include construction products made from plastic and any members who make products from reprocessed plastic.

The deadline for evidence to the Treasury is 18 May so please provide feedback by 27 April to Joe Cilia, Technical Director:
