HC Deb 19 November 1987 vol 122 c620W
Mr. Beggs

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he is willing to hold a public inquiry regarding the proposal to dump domestic waste at Magheramorne quarry, Lame.

Mr. Needham

The Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland will consult Larne borough council shortly on the planning application for the proposed waste disposal facility at Magheramorne quarry. The Department does not consider that, at this late stage in the processing of this application, a public inquiry would be warranted. Matters relating to leachate, etc., may be dealt with under any water act consent, and the operation of the waste disposal site and measures to prevent public health nuisance would be controlled by licence issued by Lame borough council.
