HC Deb 12 March 1951 vol 485 cc1037-8
7. Mr. Shepherd

asked the Minister of Supply if he can now give an assurance that atomic research stations in the United Kingdom are free from any elements likely to be a danger to the safety of the State.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

I can repeat the assurances I have already given that I am satisfied with the security measures in force.

Mr. Shepherd

Does the Minister realise that, although we welcome that assurance, it is now only given after the greatest damage has already been done?
