LONDON – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that it was unacceptable for new computers and tablets to be thrown away, after reports in British media that Amazon had destroyed electronic goods in this way.

“I was shocked and amazed to hear that computers were literally being sent to landfill,” Johnson told parliament. “I think that the whole house would agree that the practice is bizarre and unacceptable.”
