EU committee unanimously approves plastic-bag law

New law would reduce use of single-use bags

(ANSA) - Brussels, November 21 - The Committee of Permanent Representatives of EU countries on Friday unanimously approved a draft law aimed at limiting single-use plastic bag usage.
    The law is expected to receive final approval in the parliament plenary session to be held in Strasbourg next week.
    It would give member States wide latitude in deciding how to reduce plastic-bag usage in their countries, through measures such as charging for bags, national reduction targets, or outright bans.
