At Budget 2018, the Government concluded that a levy on all cups would not at this point deliver a decisive shift from disposable cups to reusable cups across all beverage types. This conclusion is based on the submissions made to the government during the call for evidence on single use plastic waste and examining alternatives to current single-use cups containing plastic.<p> </p><p>The Government expects industry to go further in taking action on disposable plastic cups and will return to the issue if sufficient progress is not made.
