In reply to my question 2942/2011, you state that LWaRB has either provided or committed to provide £21 million in loans for the development of a number of waste facilities in London. What proportion of this £21 million has actually been provided and used on waste facilities in London and how much of this sum has been used to provide facilities exclusively for waste from business sources?

Answer for Funding for Business Waste Infrastructure

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written answer provided on 28 November 2011:

To date approximately a third of the £21m referred to in the answer to question 2942/2011 has been provided to project sponsors, the remainder is committed subject to final negotiations. The projects to which funding has been provided, a gasification facility and the London Reuse Network, will manage waste from both municipal and business sources. Neither project will manage waste exclusively from business sources.
