star this property answer text <p>The Senior Deputy Speaker has asked me, as Chairman of the Services Committee, to respond on his behalf.</p><p>In April 2018 the Services Committee endorsed a number of measures to reduce the consumption of single-use plastics:</p><p><strong>A. Remove water in plastic bottles from sale in catering venues–</strong> This will be effective from October 2018, reducing plastic waste immediately.</p><p><strong>B. Eliminate the consumption of plastic-lined take-away cups for hot drinks (through substitution) and reduce overall take-away cup waste–</strong> This will be effective from October 2018, with plastic-lined disposable cups replaced with a compostable alternative.</p><p>In addition, Catering &amp; Retail Services (CRS) will continue to incentivise customers to use china mugs, or their own re-usable cups, when purchasing hot drinks by offering a 10p discount on every purchase. A 25p surcharge on all hot drinks purchased in a disposable take-away cup will be introduced from October 2018 for a twelve-month trial.</p><p><strong>C. Substitute the remainder of CRS plastic disposable items–</strong> In early 2018 all plastic drinking straws supplied by Catering &amp; Retail Services were replaced with compostable paper straws. Individual condiment sachets have also been replaced with condiment bottles. Remaining plastic catering disposable items used by Catering &amp; Retail Services will be replaced with compostable alternatives from October 2018.</p><p>The plastic tumbler cups currently provided in meeting rooms and kitchen facilities will also be replaced with compostable cups.</p><p>To capture compostable disposable products (including take-away cups) effectively, 800 compostable waste bins have been purchased and will be deployed across the Estate during the 2018 conference recess.</p><p><strong>D. Substitute single-use plastic carrier bags in Retail Services with carrier bags made from paper–</strong> The current plastic carrier bag stock is being depleted and alternative bags made from paper (using material from responsibly-managed, FSC-certified forests) have been identified as a replacement.</p><p>The following additional measures are being taken:</p><ul><li>The development of a ‘green’ stationery catalogue, to reduce the consumption of single-use avoidable plastics in stationery purchasing (implementation anticipated for October 2018);</li><li>The development of a pilot for a re-usable packaging ‘totes’ scheme at the Off-Site Consolidation Centre for all deliveries (implementation anticipated for January 2019); and</li><li>The development of procedures for incorporating the environmental impact of packaging into the weighting of relevant procurement and tender exercises (implementation anticipated for November 2018).</li></ul><p> </p>
