MPs to examine the impact of fast fashion

Clothing bosses have been asked by MPs to reveal their environmental record, due to concerns about fast fashion.
Fast fashion is the phrase for high street imitations of designer wear, intended to last for only a few months.
There are concerns that it has led to a rise in the amount of clothing bought and, therefore, a rise in the amount being dumped each year.There are also concerns that the industry is seeing an increase in poor working conditions in the factories that produce fast fashion.Westminster's environmental audit committee has asked 10 bosses at UK clothes shops to reveal their environmental record, including those at Marks & Spencer, Primark, Next, Tesco, Asda and Sports Direct.Some of the bosses will be invited to parliament to face further questions from November.
