HC Deb 07 February 1955 vol 536 c184W
Mr. Hayman

asked the Minister of Agriculture what consultations he had with the First Lord of the Admiralty about the dumping of atomic waste into the sea south-west of Land's End; and whether he is satisfied that no harmful result can ensue, either to fishermen or the fisheries.

Mr. Amory

The Atomic Energy Authority discussed arrangements for the disposal of the waste with the Admiralty before seeking my authorisation, and I fully satisfied myself that no harmful result could ensue to fishermen or the fisheries.
