A massive hike in tax on waste dumped from skips could have a catastrophic effect on the construction industry, MPs have been told.


Many firms are unable to collect the skips they have loaned out because they cannot afford to empty the waste inside them after the tax rate jumped from £2.50 a tonne to £64 a tonne.
