HC Deb 25 March 1957 vol 567 c87W
88. Mr. Skeflington

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what measures are intended to protect the public from the radiation hazards arising from the manufacturing processes of ionising radiations and radioactive substances in civilian industry.

Mr. H. Brooke

Existing powers have so far proved effective in protecting the public from hazards arising from the discharge of radioactive waste; but, in view of the prospects of an increasing use of radioactive substances, the advisory committee appointed under the Radioactive Substances Act, 1948, has set up an expert panel to consider whether additional measures of control are likely to become necessary.
