Anyone for toxic ash?

I WAS interested in the comments of John Ahern of Indaver Ireland (Irish Examiner letters, November 11), but I am still not convinced.

At the Bord Pleanála oral hearing last year, Indaver said it wanted to import waste through Northern Ireland “in the interests of the Anglo-Irish agreement”.

This is the same company which declined to reapply for planning under the new regulations which would allow for the discussion of environmental and health issues, but who instead clung to their planning application made under the old regulations six weeks before they were due to change to include health and environmental considerations.

They still have not said what they intend to do with all the toxic ash left over after incineration.

Since we do not have a toxic waste landfill facility in Ireland, it looks as if we will still be exporting. So much for self-sufficiency.
