asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of the fact that limestone quarrying operations have begun at Coolscar quarry in Wharfedale, without the necessary planning permission, he will take steps to secure the immediate cessation of those operations until after he has reached a decision on the planning application in relation to which the public inquiry reopens on 21 May.
