COVID-19: Free Carrier Bags

As from tomorrow 21 March 202o and for a period of six months, large retailers in England will be relieved of the obligation to charge for carrier bags where used solely for goods to be home delivered as part of an on line grocery delivery service. This is thanks to the Single Use Carrier Bags Charges (England) (Amendment) Order 2020 SI 2020/324 laid before Parliament at 4pm today.
