Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 October 2019 [Draft] : 08 October 2019


Finlay Carson

Will you have a calculation of the cost of introducing a DRS in isolation compared to what it would be if there was a UK scheme? That is quite important. If there...



Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 October 2019 [Draft] : 08 October 2019


Finlay Carson

I believe that April 2021 is more of a political ambition than a realistic one. Given that the UK Government has intimated its ambition to set up a DRS before 2023, at which point do you loo...



Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 October 2019 [Draft] : 08 October 2019


Finlay Carson

Finlay Carson

Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 October 2019 [Draft] : 08 October 2019


Finlay Carson

Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Committee 08 October 2019 [Draft] : 08 October 2019


Finlay Carson (Galloway and West Dumfries) (Con)

You talked about the iconic image of Scotch whisky. There are many different types of glass bottles out there for which the branding is important. Are you aware of any glass bottles that wil...
