To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what steps she is taking to tackle microbeads in products that are not included within the scope of her Department's proposed ban.
We are currently running a consultation on our proposals to ban microbeads in cosmetics and personal care products. The consultation ends on 28th Feb 2017. The consultation also seeks to gather evidence on the extent of the environmental impacts of microbeads found in other products. This evidence will be used to inform future UK actions to protect the marine environment.
