Three permanent staff oversaw waste review

Only three permanent officials oversaw the production of the Government’s review of waste policy, it has been revealed.

A Freedom of Information request made by MRW found that the three staff and a part-time secondee from WRAP comprised the “small review team” which reported to a deputy director at Defra, who oversaw other waste related subjects in addition to the review.

However, input was received from all of the permanent policy teams involved in the area, although staff resources and time allocations from other policy teams were not recorded by Defra.

MRW has also learnt that between June 2010 and June 2011, the waste review team held 30 meetings with stakeholders, four speeches were given by waste review officials and officials attended 24 events to give talks or presentations to discuss the review.
