If the trial is successful we envisage a significant reduction in the volume of straws used. CRS are also investigating what alternative straws are available with improved environmental credentials, for example fully biodegradable alternatives or paper straws. CRS envisage that this review, being undertaken in conjunction with colleagues in the House of Commons, will be completed by the end of February.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government has been clear throughout the current crisis that the Rohingya refugees who have fled into Bangladesh must be able to return to their homes in Burma voluntarily. The UK proposed and secured a UN Security Council Presidential Statement on 6 November which called for these conditions to be met and urged the Governments of Burma and Bangladesh to invite the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to participate fully in the implementation of any returns process.
