The Scottish Parliament has approved the introduction of a plastic bag charge

“New regulations to introduce a charge for single-use carrier bags have been approved by the Scottish parliament.  MSPs at Holyrood backed the plan to charge shoppers a minimum of 5p for bags.  The regulations, which were approved by 100 votes to 12, will bring in mandatory charging for almost all single-use carrier bags from October. Money raised through the introduction of the charge will go to good causes.”
