Responding to the launch of the consultation on the Scottish Government’s circular economy bill, Scottish Liberal Democrat climate emergency spokesperson Liam McArthur said:
“It has been two years since this Bill was parked. It is taking an age for the SNP/Green Government to get it going again.
“In contrast, it didn’t take them long to resume the push for independence which tells you everything about this government’s priorities.
“Scotland has a huge waste management problem and it needs to be fixed fast.
“Scottish Liberal Democrats will continue to demand that the government move faster on coffee cups, single-use plastics, fast fashion and so much more. The climate and nature emergencies can’t wait any longer.”
