Correction to Parliamentary Answer

Volume 474: debated on Monday 21 April 2008

An error has been identified in the figures in the table to the written answer given to the hon. Member for Falmouth and Camborne, (Julia Goldsworthy), 31 March 2008, Official Report, columns 503-10W.

Instead of providing the municipal waste sent to landfill by each local authority, the total municipal waste for each had been presented. The text of the answer correctly referred to waste to landfill; the numbers were incorrect for all years.

The correct figures are given below.
