The Greater Manchester Waste Regulation and Disposal Authority has nominated a councillor for membership of the Environment Agency's north-west regional environment protection advisory committee. The Secretary of State will shorly be taking a decision on the membership schemes proposed for the REPACs by the agency, but decisions on individual members are a matter for the agency itself.
