Motion text

That this House recognises that in keeping with environmental objectives, the Large Combustion Plant Directive will be operative from 2008; and calls on DEFRA to advise the European Commission that it has chosen to adopt the Emission Limit Value approach so that individual power stations are liable for reducing sulphur dioxide, most probably by fitting flue gas desulphurisation equipment, rather than the National Emission Reduction Plan option, because the latter will encourage the power generators to import low sulphur coal instead of using indigenous coal and thereby threaten 15,000 UK coal mining related jobs.
