HC Deb 02 August 1956 vol 557 cc196-7W
58. Mr. P. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Health, as representing the Lord President of the Council, whether he will invite the Medical Research Council to make a report on the genetic and other physiological effects of the use in war of the existing stocks of nuclear weapons.
