To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs pursuant to the answer of 11 June 2003, Official Report, column 877W, for what reason the Environment Agency in Leeds wrote to residents on 10 June 2003 informing them that the modification to the licence applied for had been withdrawn. [119579]

[holding answer 16 June 2003]: I understand from the Environment Agency that the letter was sent in response to one received by two members of the public, who had outlined their objection to the application, currently being considered by the Agency, for the modification of Waste Management Licence No 735 relating to a waste transfer station at Ingram Works, Wortley Moor Road, Leeds held by Harry Sanders Ltd.The response confirmed that the applicant had written formally to the Agency withdrawing that part of the modification application requesting the acceptance of bonded asbestos at the site. The remainder of the modification application is still being considered by the Agency.
