Tory MP Nadine Dorries asked early on in today's PMQs this question:

Nadine Dorries (Mid Bedfordshire) (Con): The American waste giant, Covanta, is proposing to build in my constituency an incinerator about the size of Wembley. Will the Prime Minister give an assurance that decisions about such matters will be made at a local level in future?

The Prime Minister: My hon. Friend is right to raise this, and it is right that decisions should be made locally. We want to make sure that all the latest technology for alternatives to incineration is considered, so that we can make sure that we are using the best ways to achieve a green approach.

Decided at a local level eh? Hmm I wonder what's missing from the question and the answer? It's not being decided at all at a local level because the councils are forced to reduce landfill by EU unaccountable bureaucrats and fines.

Building an incinerator is an issue that has plagued my local area, and one where the EU dimension gets ignored again.

Another example of the lack of candidness by our so-called elected representatives.
