§ Mr. Heddle
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received from the Staffordshire county council and from the Lichfield district council concerning the conditions attached to the waste disposal licence in respect of Hopwas quarry, Hopwas, near Tamworth, Staffordshire; and whether, in the light of the importance of the use of the site, the safety factors involved and the interest of local residents, he will ensure that a public inquiry or local hearing is established in accordance with the provisions of the Pollution Act 1974.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
My hon. Friend wrote to me on this matter on 24 February 1981. I am considering the issues raised and will write to him as soon as possible.
