Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 29 January 2019

To ask the Scottish Government what engagement it has had or plans with stakeholders regarding whether to ban most domestic wood burning stoves.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 14 February 2019

The independently led review of the air quality strategy 'Cleaner Air for Scotland - The Road to a Healthier Future' held a stakeholder workshop in January which included representatives from the wood burners industry. Domestic wood burning stoves are a specific issue being considered by one of the expert working groups which includes industry representatives, and will provide recommendations to the review. Wider public consultation on these recommendations will take place later in 2019.
