It is worrying to hear the reports of the odour from the site. I understand that an odour suppression system has now been installed in the waste tipping bay and that further engineering works are under way to try to tackle the problem. I can assure the hon.

Earlier this year, it took regulatory action preventing the site from accepting waste until remedial work has been undertaken.
