§ Mr. Canavan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, in view of recent representations made to him, he will reconsider his decision not to establish an independent public inquiry into environmental pollution and associated human and animal health problems within a radius of 20 miles of Bonnybridge, Stirlingshire.
§ Mr. Ancram
My right hon. and learned Friend considers that the recent representations made to him contained no substantive evidence which would justify reconsidering the earlier decision.
