§ 13. Mr. Stephen O'Brien
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement on the effect on people living in Cheshire of the proposals for a waste incinerator at Wrexham. 
§ Mr. Paul Murphy
Any planning proposal is rightly a matter for the relevant local authority. In certain circumstances, such planning applications may be called in by the National Assembly for Wales.
I understand that the public inquiry on this application took evidence from a significant number of individuals and groups on all aspects of the case and that views of Cheshire residents were well represented.
