There`s LOADS of reading matter,most of it very repetitive but nothing technical. You reply by email. I basically said the get-out clause ( called investment incentives) needs to be more specific,that they should be less generous and it should be less easily applied because otherwise companies WILL find ways to wriggle out of it and the Gov then won`t raise very much at all,et alone the £5billion they are expecting! And that these investment incentives should only apply to Alternative forms of Energy Generation because otherwise they`ll be using it to explore for more Oil & Gas and that would make keeping COP26 promises impossible.

    Free Sprout plants! I think there`s about 4-5. You can only buy a tray12! 2-3 for me, 2-3 for Dad and the rest I have to give away-so annoying. But you have to be local to East Barnet which is where I am.

    They can`t get Whetstone right-can they? Entirely the wrong picture-that`s Whitestone in the US!!😆 I thought I`d sent them a picture including the Griffin and explained where Whetstone is? Is it my imagination or did we have a suitable photo for a while and then it reverted back to this?

    Be prepared it`s quite long.It covers,wipes,sachets,single use bottles & cups and possibly other things I`ve forgotten.I didn`t give `evidence` every time,which is asked for,(!!) though I did try to provide links to either real evidence or at least articles from respected organisations laying out the problems. I suggested biodegradables-easily obtainable materials available and `return-clean and take another full one` systems for bottles-like Milk deliveries. I did that because there are sytems to copy(milkmen) and sytems are already half there in some supermarkets anyway. I`ve also suggested Loyalty points can be consumer incentives! It`s very easy to find links to items that fit the bill on biodegradables and since they are sellers they provide costings too. Worth doing IMHO https://consult.defra.gov.uk/environmental-quality/call-for-evidence-on-commonly-littered-and-problem/consultation/intro/?fbclid=IwAR1lsdV7nIw00Lzd6b5HmobvjOsozyzx7zNRryPYIVFxPfRplHiLjEJlPxo

    There`s been some talk of the Local Loop and the Business Directory. I`ve got into the habit of NOT going there so I did and found it interesting-there`s enough in my area unlike some. BUT the search is all wrong. If I want to look up a business it`s very common that I have no idea which business,I only know what type- Gas Engineer, Plumber ect. So why isn`t there a search for business type? Seems obvious to me that people don`t always know what the business they are hoping to find might be called.
