Health Minister and Liberal Democrat MP for North Norfolk Norman Lamb has welcomed the Government's decision to withdraw funding for a waste incinerator near King's Lynn.
Commenting after the announcement that the Community Waste Infrastructure Credits would be withdrawn from Norfolk’s planned incinerator project, Norman Lamb said:
“I strongly support today’s decision. Liberal Democrats in Norfolk have consistently opposed the Conservative plan to build a waste incinerator near King’s Lynn.
"The decision to build a waste incinerator was taken without securing community support and without exploring other better technologies.
“I have previously asked officials in Defra to help the council explore ways of funding alternative technologies if plans to build the incinerator are scrapped and I will continue to support NCC in any way I can in developing sustainable waste solutions for the future.”
