I have just secured a new Ten Minute Rule Bill to be read on April 6th.
I am going to use the Bill to oppose the Covanta proposal to build a far too large Energy-From-Waste site in Mid Bedfordshire.
The Bill will be framed around allowing those people who will have their immediate environment impacted upon, either visually or in any other way, a referendum to approve or disapprove such facilities when they specifically relate to providing services for residents other than those in Bedfordshire.
I’m awaiting instruction from the Public Bill Office regarding a long and short title, do’s and don’ts and specifics. I have to be careful as aspects of the Bill could stray into private legislation.
More news later.
