Call for goods repairability rating

The Liberal Democrats and Green Party have called on the Government to force manufacturers to add repairability score to electrical devices and appliances.

The move would mirror a similar scheme in France starting next year.

Liberal Democrat environment spokeswoman Sarah Olney told the BBC, "This is not just about empowering people to make informed choices about what they buy, but also has the potential to create new skilled jobs as part of a green recovery from the COVID crisis."

The Government said that it was "seeking powers" to make companies more "resource-efficient".
