Parliamentary debates and questions

S5W-07809: Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 7 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what progress it is making in developing its Circular Economy and Zero Waste Bill; what issues it has explored; what stakeholders have been engaged, and what the timeline is for its introduction.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 22 March 2017

The Bill will build on the priorities set out in our circular economy strategy 'Making Things Last' which identifies the areas in which we can make the biggest impact.

We will work closely with business, industry and other stakeholders to develop ideas and proposals for the Bill during the course of 2017. As set out in the Programme for Government 2016-7, we intend to introduce the Bill in the second half of the parliamentary session.
