By the time you read this one of our Vice-Chairs, Dan Roberts, will have given evidence to the House of Commons EFRA Committee (17 July) on its inquiry into plastic food and drink packaging (see his evidence here). This will be the fourth appearance for LARAC in front of a House of Commons Committee as well as having appeared at a Welsh Assembly one. It is a very important part of the policy work that LARAC does and is an opportunity to get the situation local authorities face at the moment in front of national politicians. These committees usually produce reports that DEFRA has to respond to/take into account, so you are getting right into the policy making process.
