Call for Evidence: Plastic Bag Charge for England
This Call for Evidence is an opportunity for you to provide evidence on key aspects of how the plastic bag charge in England will work.
Some decisions about how the charge will work have already been made, such as the size of the charge (5p) and what it applies to (single-use plastic bags). We would like you to focus your responses on the areas where we are still considering the evidence.
What Happens Next
The evidence received through this Call for Evidence will be used to inform the drafting during 2014 of the Regulations for the charge in England.
The plastic bag charge for England should come into force on October 2015.
