answer text <p>This government has pledged to ensure that this will be the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than it found it. As part of this, government will introduce a world-leading new tax on plastic packaging, and reform the packaging producer responsibility system so that producers of all packaging materials are responsible for the full costs of managing waste packaging. At Budget 2018, government also announced a £20m innovation fund to tackle single-use plastics. Alongside these measures, government has committed to remove consumer single-use plastics from central government buildings by 2020. Together, these policies form part of the government’s wider strategy on tackling waste, as detailed in the Resources and Waste Strategy published in December 2018.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The government has committed to increase the recycling of packaging waste and the recyclability of packaging. The recent Resources and Waste Strategy announced that the government would improve recycling rates by ensuring a consistent set of dry recyclable materials is collected from all households and businesses and that every householder and appropriate businesses have a weekly separate food waste collection. For packaging waste, we will invoke the ‘polluter pays’ principle and extended producer responsibility for packaging, ensuring that producers pay the full net costs of managing packaging waste at end of life. Government will also ensure that local authorities are resourced to meet the new net costs arising from policies within the Resources and Waste Strategy.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Chancellor has been clear that raising productivity is the only way to expand the economy in the long term. Doing so will mean encouraging growth in the manufacturing sector, boosting the adoption of technology and enabling more British firms to export. That’s why we increased the National Productivity Investment Fund to £37bn at Budget 2018, and have announced a wide range of productivity enhancing measures at previous fiscal events. Most recently this has included £81 million for a new extreme photonics centre in Oxfordshire, £45 million for the European Bioinformatics Institute, and £79 million for a new supercomputer to be hosted at Edinburgh University.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The Digital Services Tax will only apply to businesses with in-scope revenues of more than £500 million globally and £25 million in the UK, and businesses will not have to pay the tax on their first £25 million of relevant UK revenues. This means small businesses will not be in scope of the tax.</p><p> </p><p>The tax also includes a ‘safe-harbour’ which means those with very low profit margins will be able to elect to pay a lower rate of tax, which will ensure the DST is proportionate.</p> more like this
