HC Deb 14 May 1991 vol 191 c125W
Mr. Flynn

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what assessment the Health and Safety Executive has made of the dangers posed to the health of local people of Mansfield Woodhouse from the fumes from the fire at a plastics factory on 6 May.

Mr. Forth

As this fire was not reportable to the Health and Safety Executive under the Reporting of Incidents, diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1985, the HSE is not carrying out an investigation. However based on its knowledge of the factory, the HSE has advised the emergency services and other official bodies involved that the health of the people of Mansfield Woodhouse is unlikely to have been put at risk by the fumes from the fire.
