HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 c486
35. Mr. Jenkins

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the proposal of the Monmouth Town Council to establish a refuse tip in a thickly populated area has aroused intense local opposition because of the health and amenity dangers involved, and the close proximity of two dairies and two schools; whether he has considered a petition of protest from local residents; and whether he will take steps to satisfy himself regarding the wisdom or otherwise of the proposal?

Mr. Bernays

My right hon. Friend is aware of the proposal and has received a petition of protest. He understands that an order for the compulsory purchase of the proposed site is to be submitted to him by the town council for confirmation. He would, in that case, direct the holding of a public local inquiry into the matter.
