To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will instruct Her Majesty's inspectorate of pollution to investigate the pollution implications of the tyre fire at Knighton and Heyhope in Powys.

No. Inspectors have given advice to the local authority which is responsible for regulating waste disposal sites and the burning of tyres.Questions about the incident itself should be addressed to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales.
