Can a small change make a big difference?


Great article Phillip. I suspect that this change is a minor tidying up - it seems to involve a grand total of four staff moving from BIS to Defra - but I think that it is nonetheless helpful for the longer term, for the reasons you state. If the UK stays in the EU, and if the CE Package is adopted, then the UK producer responsibility regimes will need fundamental review, and having them all brigaded together in Defra should help with that.
