HC Deb 13 May 1957 vol 570 cc8-10W
Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what reports he has received regarding the contamina- tion of the soil and of green vegetables by radiostrontium in Scotland; what warning or advice he has issued; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Maclay

No tests have so far been made in Scotland but, as a result of dis- cussions between my Department and the Atomic Energy Authority, arrangements have now been made for the regular sampling and analyses of soil, vegetation and sheep bones from a hill farm in Argyllshire and a farm in the Lothians.
