SDLP Environment Minister Mark H Durkan has said he is looking at the option of licensing plans for all bonfires in Northern Ireland.
Although there are no laws against having a bonfire there are laws for the nuisance they can cause.
There are also various environmental laws that are currently not enforced in Northern Ireland during the bonfire season.
Is licensing a good idea or would it merely inflame tensions.
