Bin Taxes

Asked if the Prime Minister had a strong view on bin taxes, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman told the assembled press that the Government’s position on the matter was set out by Defra before Christmas. The Government was looking at how to incentivise on a pilot basis, five local authority areas. Defra were in the process of working up details of those pilot schemes with the interested local authorities.

Asked what climate change champions were, the PMS replied that they were teenagers appointed by Defra. They would be coming to Downing Street to discuss climate change with the Prime Minister.
