London could face a fine from the EU

London could face a £2 billion fine from the EU unless mayor Ken Livingstone dramatically improves the capital's waste management, according to latest analysis. A report published by the London Assembly's environment committee claims that the city is not expected to reach its EU waste targets for 2005. This could equate to a fine of more than £600 per household. The mayor's London Plan proposes a single waste authority for the capital as a medium to long-term solution, but this has yet to be approved by the ODPM.
