I am simply using Stephen Day as an example, Mr. Olner. He has campaigned against applications for masts in Yew Tree Park road and elsewhere in Hulme, and against applications in Bramhall, Woodford and Stepping Hill. I wish him further success in his campaign.

To conclude, this is an important and sensitive issue, which the Government clearly need to address. As you said yourself, Mr. Olner, this morning's attendance in the Chamber demonstrates that the issue is of huge interest to colleagues and to all our constituents. We owe our constituents a duty to get things right, and they deserve to have their environment and health protected. We live in a democracy, so they should be fully consulted on the application process, and the Government need to listen to their concerns.
