A petition calling for the banning of plastic shopping bags will be discussed by the Neighbourhoods Scrutiny Committee of Manchester City Council on Tuesday 26th August.
The petition, launched in October, gathered over the 1000 name threshold for discussion at a scrutiny committee, with 522 people signing online.
Also on the agenda for this meeting will be a “more detailed report” on the Council’s progress over the last year on reducing its carbon emissions. (See “#Manchester #climate bosses think warm winter + buildings sell-off = “success”).
The meeting is due to take place at 2pm on Tuesday 25th August, in the “Scrutiny Room” at Manchester Town Hall. The meeting is open to the public, and there is no need to book.
