Bill Cash MP calls for Government to review noise and distance limits over wind turbines

Press release 18/12/09

In response to recent reports on wind turbines relating to noise-induced health concerns and setback distances from housing, Bill Cash MP said:
 
“The recent media reports suggest that the Government may have ignored health concerns related to significantly high noise levels resulting from wind turbines because they had set an unsuitably high limit. This serious concern must be answered. 
 
“Noise levels of 33 decibel limit were ignored because Government officials used a very high 43 decibel limit instead.
 
“I have written to Ed Miliband, as this cannot be an acceptable way to pursue these schemes, which are also greatly inefficient, uneconomic and packed with subsidies.”
 
Mr. Cash also continued to raise the issue of setback distances in his letter to the Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change.

Press release 05/08/09       

MP for Alton, Bill Cash attended a meeting of Alton Parish Council on Monday 3rd August to discuss their concerns, particularly relating to traffic generated by Alton Towers and the safety of those who live in Alton.

Bill Cash said that he would take the matter up with the Leader of Staffordshire County Council, Philip Atkins, which he did yesterday at County Hall.

Following the meeting, Bill Cash has also written to Severn Trent regarding the problems of raw sewage which is coming on to the road and bicycle tracks in time of heavy rain or flooding and which is causing a health hazard for the general population and the young people who come to Alton Castle for holiday periods.

Bill Cash endorses Ombudsman report over botched payments scheme for local farmers

 Press release 18/12/09

 
In response to the publication of the Parliamentary Ombudsman’s report on the administration of the 2005 Single Payment Scheme by the Rural Payments Agency, Bill Cash MP said:
 
“I have made many representations on behalf of local farmers over their payments through the Agency which falls under the control of the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, and it is clear to see that it has become a failure.
 
“Farmers in England receive about £1.6billion a year in subsidies from the Single Payment Scheme. However, the report makes clear that the Rural Payments Agency continued to tell farmers that it would keep to a payment timetable when it was clear it could not have made the payments and consequently, farmers suffered.
 
“I endorse their view that an appropriate remedy should be found where an injustice such as this one has been suffered as the consequence of maladministration by a public body.
 
“I would only add that the wholescale and proper reform of our governance arrangements in agriculture would depend on whether Britain is prepared takes back the powers it has handed over to the European Union on all vital agricultural matters, which should have always remained local, not supranational.”
