LONDON - Britain's Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has revealed that the government currently has no plans to introduce an 'extended producer responsibility' (EPR) scheme for textiles.

Thérèse Coffey was giving evidence to the Environmental Audit Committee which has been calling for an EPR scheme, which would make fashion brands responsible for textile waste, since 2019.

She told the committee that her department was prioritising an EPR scheme for packaging and added: "I think it is fair to say that I do not anticipate an EPR for textiles coming into place anywhere in the near future."
