Asbestos Waste Storage (Essex)

Volume 449: debated on Tuesday 25 July 2006

I wish to present a petition on behalf of my constituents railing against an asbestos site. I have presented previous petitions on the subject and I have another with 250 signatures. The petitioners especially wanted the House of Commons to receive their petition. They claim that the storage of hazardous asbestos waste would introduce unacceptable risks to residential properties and a school that is near the plant, that it would put local roads under increased pressure and risk, and that there are far more appropriate sites for that activity in Castle Point and in Essex generally.

The Petitioners therefore implore the House of Commons to call upon the Government to do all within its power to ensure that Essex county council reject the application as requested by the Member of Parliament for Castle Point.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
