Ahead of Defra launching its consultation on proposals to ban single-use plastic straws, the Alliance heard that the Government was considering this. We wrote to Chancellor, Philip Hammond, to highlight the need for the school milk industry to be supported to adjust to using alternative materials, considering school milk is currently packaged with a straw. Moving forward, we will write to Defra Secretary, Michael Gove, to highlight this to him too, in a letter that will complement the evidence we submit to the consultation.
