Domestic Waste: Fixed Penalties
Mr. Stewart Jackson:
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what assessment the Government have made of the merits of introducing a statutory appeals process for fixed penalty notices issued under the Clean Neighbourhood and Environment Act 2005. 
26 Oct 2009 : Column 44W
The Government do not consider that a statutory appeals process for fixed penalty notices is needed.
Fixed penalty notices for offences, such as littering, are issued as an alternative to prosecution in a magistrates court. Accepting and paying a fixed penalty notice removes all liability for the offence. An individual served with a notice may choose instead to have their case tried in court.
Domestic Waste: Greater London
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what the figures for each London local authority for (a) household waste per head, (b) percentage of all household waste recycled, (c) total non-household waste and (d) percentage of all non-household waste recycled were for (i) 2006-07, (ii) 2007-08 and (iii) 2008-09. 
The following table shows the data requested for 2006-07 and 2007-08. Local authority level data for all of 2008-09 will be published on DEFRA's website on 5 November 2009.
As requested, reuse is not included in any of the recycling data so will therefore not match some published data which include reuse.
