HC Deb 25 May 2000 vol 350 c572W
Mr. Mackinlay

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will list in order of the quantity of waste dealt with the main waste disposal facilities in the east of England. [123383]

Mr. Mullin

[holding answer 23 May 2000]: The list of main waste disposal facilities in the east of England, in order of quantity of waste dealt with, is given in the table. For the purpose of this response, a main waste disposal facility is taken to mean their taking in excess of 90,000 tonnes of waste per year. The figures relate to 1998–99 (or the nearest available year).

In the course of this year, the Housing Corporation is reviewing governance arrangements in the registered social landlord sector. It will be issuing revised performance standards, following consultation, in April 2001.

My Department has also contributed to the work of the Committee on Standards in Public Life in producing its reports on Local Public Spending Bodies.
