Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill — New Clause 2 — Duty to keep land and highways clear of litter — 21 Feb 2005 at 17:45

The no voters kept the following proposed clause out of the Gating Orders bill. The clause would have tightened the law on discarding litter including chewing gum in particular.

'In section 89 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 (Duty to keep land and highways clear of litter), after subsection (4) insert—

"(4A) The appropriate person may by regulations make provision about the standards to which persons must keep land clear of litter under subsection (1) above in respect of different kinds of litter.

(4B) In particular, such regulations may make particular provision about discarded chewing gum and the discarded remains of other products designed for chewing."'.
