UKIP says incinerator "totally uneconomic"

The UKIP group on Norfolk County Council says the project is "totally uneconomic" and that everyone should work together to find "a solution to the compensation payable if the contract is terminated."

“Today’s announcement of the withdrawal of the Waste Infrastructure Credits shows that the Government have come to the same conclusion as we have, that it is a pointless exercise to borrow money to subsidise a project that is totally uneconomic.

– Cllr Toby Coke, UKIP leader, Norfolk County Council
