Dear Nicky

Really sorry to hear such bad news, let's hope that fdaced with more
information they will change their minds...

I have copied your message to the European Strawbale list, as I know there
are people who have done lots of work with fire testing - is anyone able to
maybe provide some links/data/testimonial to Nicky that could be shown to
the Spanish authorities that strawbale is not a fire risk? Any examples from
Spain would be even better...

Best Wishes
