Deputy Flouquet responds to Deputy Dudley-Owen’s Amendment on the Waste Hierarchy

September 30th, 2010 by Bernard Flouquet

“As Deputy Dudley-Owen said it is a complicated issue that we are discussing here this afternoon although she may have gone somewhat over and beyond the actual amendment itself explaining what the public require from PSD.  I suggest that these are different issues so I will stay clearly within the confines of discussing the actual […]
