MHK to query government plastics crackdown

An MHK wants to know how the government is doing in reducing its use of plastics.

Arbory, Castletown and Malew MHK Jason Moorhouse will ask what progress has been made by politicians to cut down on the use of them since an initiative to do so was started.

His query will be put to Environment, Food & Agriculture Minister, Geoffrey Boot MHK, at the latest sitting of Tynwald taking place in Douglas tomorrow from 10.30am.

The government project to lower the amount of plastics officials use was unanimously approved by the court last year with the aim of banning items such as straws, plates and cutlery by January 2021.
