§ Mr. Baldry
I met the hon. Member on 21 February 1991. Leicester city councillor Mr. Mugglestone asked to meet my hon. Friend the Minister for Housing and Planning to discuss a proposed development on a closed landfill site at Barkby Thorpe. My hon. Friend could not agree to this request; nor could he now meet local residents, because some planning applications on or near the site are subject to appeal to the Secretary of State. Finally, Leicester city council applied for supplementary credit approval for measures to deal with landfill gas at closed landfill sites in their area, and was allocated £130,000 for financial year 1991–92.
