The Rookery South (Resource Recovery Facility) Order 2011 - The Rookery South (Resource Recovery Facility) Order 2011 Contents

Scope of the Joint Committee

5.   This Committee first met on 11 July 2012 to consider procedural questions and to determine the scope of our consideration of the petitions. The two Chairmen had identified an anomaly in the statutory framework governing operation of the Special Parliamentary Procedure, giving rise to an absence of clarity about the scope of this Joint Committee's consideration of the petitions referred to it. That anomaly is dealt with in detail in their Report on the petitions.

6.  We chose, after hearing contributions from the parties, to hear the case of each petitioner in full, on the basis of the petitions as submitted to the two Houses and referred to us.
