MPs call for England incinerator moratorium

MP members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Air Pollution have called for the Government in England to follow Wales and Scotland and implement a moratorium on all new incinerator planning approvals, following a new report from the group which highlights a significant growth in particulate emissions from incinerators if the 50 incinerators that are proposed to be built between now and 2030 are approved.
