HC Deb 04 April 2001 vol 366 c227W
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. [155504]

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.
