To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, with reference to his Department's consultation on cleaner domestic burning of solid fuels and wood in England, if he will place in the Library copies of reports and datasets on the gluing agents used in the manufacture of smokeless briquettes and the toxic pollutants these gluing agents release when burnt on open domestic fires being considered in that consultation; and if he will make a statement.

I refer my Hon Friend to the reply previously given on 8 April 2019 to PQ 238630.

Our assessments of emissions of pollutants from domestic combustion sources use a range of data but are based on established international reporting. The range of fuels and appliances used in the UK is large and emissions from each combination vary greatly depending on how the appliance is operated.

Any publicly available resources we have used to inform our analysis of the proposals in the consultation will be made available with the Government response.
