EDM number 749 in 2004-05, proposed by Paul Flynn on 22/02/2005.

That this House applauds the inspired choice of Newport as the venue for the European Union's Foreign Ministers' September meeting on global warming and Africa; notes the city's leading environmental work, including Europe's largest and most efficient fridge disposal plant, handling 700,000 units a year, the new rail link that has moved 50,000 lorry journeys from road to rail, the world's largest industrial shredder, which recycles material from 450 end-of-life vehicles an hour, and Wales's most successful household waste recyclers, Newport Wastesavers; and urges visiting ministers to inspect the city's unique potential for renewable power enterprises by harnessing the world's second highest tidal range.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
