Carmarthenshire MP hopes debate will make Climate Change Minister sit back and think about Brechfa application.
A CARMARTHENSHIRE MP has summoned a debate on a proposed wind farm.
Jonathan Edwards, MP for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr, secured the debate after learning the Minister for Climate Change, Gregory Barker MP, would not be visiting Brechfa to gain an understanding of the community before passing judgment on the application.
Mr Edwards asked participants on Wednesday: "How can my constituents have confidence in the Minister's decision when he, sitting in his office here in London, decides on an application that is over 200 miles away, in a village he does not know, in a community he does not understand, and in a county he won't come to visit?"
Speaking after the debate, he said: "As I said in my opening remarks, if I had my way, there would be no need for my debate as decisions on energy policy would be made in our own national democratic institution.
