star this property answer text <p>The Government takes the issue of illegal trade in eels very seriously and is keen to ensure that at all stages of development – glass eel, elver, or mature eel - they are appropriately protected.</p><p> </p><p>The glass eel fishery in England is highly regulated, and we remain confident we have a good traceability of the catch from the riverbank to the point of export. All known exports of catch from the UK glass eel fishery in recent years have been destined for the known legal market in the EU for restocking and aquaculture.</p><p> </p><p>Moreover, the UK continues to contribute to and support Operation Lake – Europol’s operation to tackle illegal eel trafficking across international borders. We work closely with our European and other international partners in a number of international fora, such as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), to ensure we are taking strong and effective measures to deter any illegal trade.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Secretary of State has regular discussions with Ministers across Government Departments about air pollution and how to reduce it. There remains a significant debate among experts about the efficacy of vegetation in reducing air pollution. Defra’s Air Quality Expert Group conclude that overall, vegetation and trees in particular are regarded as beneficial for the environment but they are not a solution to air quality problems in our cities and towns. The Government is giving priority to action on the multiple sources of pollutants, delivered through the Clean Air Strategy.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to increasing recycling rates. Our consultation on ‘consistency in household and business recycling collections in England’ sought views on how to do this. One of the proposals in the consultation was for all collectors of waste to collect a core set of materials from households and businesses. We believe that if the same core set of materials was collected for recycling there would be less confusion among householders and members of public about what can be recycled. As a result, both the quantity and quality of recycling would increase.</p><p> </p><p>We are currently analysing responses to the consultation and will publish the Government’s response to it shortly.</p><p> </p> more like this

The publication of the Strategy, setting out the long-term policy environment will encourage and support the required investment.</p><p> </p><p>Specific measures taken by the Government that are already supporting the creation of new recycling infrastructure include:</p><p> </p><ul><li>£4.7m of grant funding, which was announced on 12 June and made available through the Waste and Resources Action Programme, to support new capital infrastructure projects that will help to recycle difficult plastic packaging and textile materials. Further grant opportunities around recycling will follow in due course.</li></ul><p> </p><ul><li>The packaging waste producer responsibility scheme, which raised £130 million in 2018 through the purchase by producers of packaging waste recovery and export notes. Just under £82 million of this supported the development of infrastructure.
