Dear Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs,

What is the latest research your department has conducted on the impact to the environment on the usage of disposable nappies, including estimations on the number used each year in the UK; the percentage of landfill nappies equate to in the UK; and how much single use plastic is used in the use of disposable nappies in the UK, and if any fiscal measures are being looked at to encourage people to find alternatives.

Yours faithfully,

Jonathan Sheppard
