asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if in view of the destruction of the incinerator stack at the Re-Chem plant in Bonnybridge and the concern about possible emissions from the chimney stack on the health of residents in the Denny and Bonnybridge areas, he will publish information about measurements made for metal and chlorinated organic compound in the combustion products and gases of that chimney; and if he will provide the results of any investigation.

I understand there is no immediate intention to dismantle the stack. Samples of the deposits in the stack have been taken by my inspectors for analyses; the results are not yet available but I shall publish them in due course.
