Plastic Bags

Asked if the Government had been taking a strong stand on the subject of plastic bags, the PMS referred the journalist back to the speech that the Prime Minister made on the environment. The Prime Minister had spoken during this speech on how we were working with supermarkets and others to reduce plastic bag usage.

Asked if there was a tax system involved in reducing plastic bag usage, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister’s views on plastic bag usage were set out in his speech last November.

Put that Dublin was not necessarily the model, the PMS said that obviously we looked at all international experience.
