A public hearing will be held on Thursday 20 April on proposed legislation that would restrict the supply and sale of plastic bags in Victoria.

The public hearing by the Environment and Planning Committee will be held from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm in the Legislative Council Committee Room at Parliament House.

The Committee is examining the Environment Protection Amendment (Banning Plastic Bags, Packaging and Microbeads) Bill 2016.

The Bill seeks to restrict the supply and sale of plastic bags and plastic and polystyrene packaging, and would prohibit the supply and sale of plastic microbeads.

The schedule for Thursday’s hearing and more details on the inquiry are available from the Committee’s website.
