Agency applies 'fit and proper' rules in revocation

The Environment Agency is beginning to make greater use of its powers to revoke waste management licences. The Agency has revoked fewer than 20 licences since 1996 in relation to compliance or pollution problems, but six have been revoked so far this year - including the first where the stated grounds were that the holder was not "fit and proper".
