unstar this property answer text <p>The UK meets legal limits for concentrations of all air pollutants, with the exception of nitrogen dioxide (NO<sub>2</sub>). Calculating peoples’ annual NO<sub>2</sub> exposure is not straightforward, because an individual’s exposure varies as they move about their daily life. The Government therefore does not hold estimates of the number of people exposed to NO<sub>2</sub> levels above legal limits.</p><p> </p><p>The vast majority of exceedances of the NO<sub>2</sub> limits occur at roadside locations within ten metres of the kerb. We are working with a number of local authorities to reduce roadside NO<sub>2</sub> concentrations, and our latest modelling indicates that 9% of the road links assessed exceeded NO<sub>2</sub> limits.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We have not received any representations on protecting the bittern under phase one of the 2016 Special Protection Area (SPA) Review.</p><p> </p><p>We have however received an SPA review phase two report from the Joint Nature Conservation Committee, which sets out potential options to address the insufficiencies identified in the phase one report. Officials are currently considering the implications of the report in liaison with Natural England, noting that work to refine these options will need to be prioritised in order to make best use of resources.</p><p> </p><p>For the bittern, the report highlights that there are SPA insufficiencies, which may be addressed by adding the species as a feature of other existing SPAs, where it is present in sufficient numbers. This confirms that the species has expanded in numbers and range, indicating that our conservation measures, including the SPA network, are proving effective.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The current 2013 Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations are based on producer responsibility requiring producers to pay for the environmentally sound collection, treatment and recycling of electronic products when they become waste. The WEEE Regulations have contributed to high levels of collection, treatment and recycling of electrical waste since 2014. Last year, producers financed the collection of 493,323 tonnes of household WEEE.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s Resources and Waste Strategy sets out that we will consult on changing the WEEE producer responsibility regime by the end of 2020 as part of the strategy to increase resource efficiency and the adoption of circular economy principles. Measures to stimulate recycling of electrical and electronic equipment will consider how to reward producers for designing and selling more resource efficient products or services.</p><p> </p> more like this
