Motion S4M-12940: Keep Scotland Beautiful

13 Apr 2015

That the Parliament welcomes Keep Scotland Beautiful’s new report, which finds that the recently implemented plastic bag charge has seen plastic bag usage drop by as much as 90%; notes Keep Scotland Beautiful’s conclusion that the measure has been a resounding success; considers that this is an example of wise legislation having a hugely positive impact on public behaviour; congratulates the Scottish public on embracing what it considers this important environmental measure, and hopes that imaginative solutions can also be found for other litter-based problems.
