asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has any plans to hold a public inquiry into the proposal to construct a power generation and resource recovery unit on a site in Stonebridge lane in Liverpool; and if he will make a statement.

I see no reason to justify holding a public inquiry into these proposals. The plant will be subject to strict operational control by the local authority as a waste disposal site and, as regards atmospheric emissions, by Her Majesty's inspectorate of pollution as an electricity works.
