HC Deb 17 February 1997 vol 290 cc415-6W
Mr. Meacher

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what new documentation will be considered in the extended period of evaluation announced on 5 February, in respect of the Nirex application to contract a rock characterisation facility at Longlands farm, Gosforth, in Cumbria; if he proposes the inspector at the public inquiry on the RCF should review this new documentation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gummer

Before reaching a decision on the planning appeal concerning this application I am considering the evidence brought to my attention which is relevant. I am also considering how any relevant evidence should be reviewed.
