To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what estimate he has made of the average time per year spent by a household in sorting and recycling rubbish.
No such estimate has been made.
The implications of this are in this old piece of mine.
Now think this through for a moment. What is the ultimate non-renewable resource? The one thing we can never recycle?
Yes, of course, it is our time. Once it's gone it's gone. So we have a system whereby we are not measuring our use of irreplacable resources in recycling our resources.
There's something seriously wrong with this system, isn't there?
And where does it come from? Yes, you've guessed it, the EU.
