answer text <p>In the recently published Resources and Waste Strategy, the Government stated its ambition to further improve domestic reprocessing, and committed to several policies to help stimulate investment in UK reprocessing capacity and improve competitiveness. These policies, subject to consultation, include: implementing extended producer responsibility for various waste streams; introducing a deposit return scheme for drinks containers; raising recycling targets for plastic and other types of packaging; implementing a tax on plastic packaging with less than 30% recycled content; and exploring options to ensure fair competition for all reprocessors, including tighter monitoring and enforcement of waste exports.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Waste must be properly managed whether processed at home or abroad. We work closely with the waste industry, Environment Agency and local authorities to achieve this. The Government outlines in the Resources and Waste Strategy its commitment to prevent waste from occurring in the first place, and managing it better when it does.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is recycling more than ever and the Government is committed to recycling more at home. Our approach in the Resources and Waste Strategy, from production through consumption to end of life, is focused on increasing supply and demand for secondary materials to be recycled in the UK. This will grow the UK recycling industry and reduce the need to export recyclable waste. Waste is a commodity and these secondary materials will always have a global market and exports from the UK will form an ongoing part of our resource management where there is demand.</p><p> </p><p>We also want to ensure, however, that any waste which we do send abroad is fit for recycling, and that it is recycled to equivalent standards as required in the UK. Increased monitoring and enforcement of exports should create a more level playing field for domestic recyclers.</p>

answer text <p>The UK has been a vocal advocate of the anti-corruption efforts and the valuable work carried out by the International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG) to support and strengthen Guatemalan national institutions. The UK is deeply disappointed at the Guatemalan Government's continued attempts to prevent CICIG from carrying out its mandate, and the attacks on the Constitutional Court which threaten to undermine the rule of law in Guatemala in a year when general elections will be held. In response, I [Sir Alan Duncan] released a statement on 14 January. The UK also joined statements from the EU and the G13 local donor group condemning Guatemala's decision to unilaterally terminate the agreement establishing CICIG and urging the Guatemalan Government to uphold the rule of law. The UK will continue to monitor developments, through our Embassy in Guatemala, and call upon the Guatemalan Government to allow CICIG to complete its mandate and ensure the security of its staff.</p>
