star this property answer text <p>The CAA, as the independent safety regulator, has not made an estimate of the scale of unlawful passenger transport operations.</p><p> </p><p>There are strict rules in place that require commercial air transport operations to be operated by the holder of an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and an Operating Licence (OL). It is an offence to operate a commercial air transport flight without an AOC or OL.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2016, the CAA’s investigations and enforcement team has received 21 allegations of illegal public transport. The CAA investigates such allegations and will prosecute people where there is sufficient evidence, and where it is in the public interest to do so. The CAA also conducts spot check visits to airfields and public events where aeroplane and helicopter operations take place, and where it finds evidence that a flight may have operated illegally it has the power to detain an aircraft and, where appropriate, take enforcement action.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Through our Resources and Waste Strategy we have set long-term targets to divert more waste from landfill and to drive up recycling. Key ambitions include delivering a 65% municipal waste recycling rate by 2035, a minimum 70% recycling rate for packaging waste by 2030 and implementing a deposit return scheme for drinks containers, subject to consultation. 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. Proposed reforms will support the development of new and improved recycling infrastructure.</li></ul><p> </p><ul><li>Investment of £3 billion of grant funding in 24 Private Finance Initiative waste infrastructure projects. These grants support infrastructure including material recovery, mechanical biological treatment and anaerobic digestion facilities, as well as implementation and expanding kerbside recycling services.</li></ul>
