Petition - Removal of Greenfield Sites in Bulkington from Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Plan: Lea Valley Greenhouse Glass Industry (18 Jul 2017)

Charles Walker: My hon. Friend makes a very important point. He said that the application will be considered on its merits.

However, what Hertfordshire County Council, the sponsor of the facility, is actually proposing is that all the smoke ends up in Harlow’s backyard and Epping...

Personal Independence Payment: Regulations (29 Mar 2017)

Charles Walker: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. May I apologise to you and the House for inadvertently misleading it during my Adjournment debate last Thursday on the Ratty’s Lane incinerator? I said that in 2012 Hertfordshire County Council objected to 46 of Veolia’s HGV movements a day, and that the company was now proposing 212 HGV movements a day.
