HC Deb 28 November 1957 vol 578 c136W
Mrs. Butler

asked the Prime Minister from what groups engaged in research into contamination by the fission products of nuclear explosions he obtains advice and information; what are the respective terms of reference of these groups; and at what intervals they issue reports.

The Prime Minister

My reply to Questions on 31st October described the arrangements for monitoring radioactive contamination. Her Majesty's Government are advised about the significance of the measurements so taken and about other relevant research by the Medical and the Agricultural Research Councils. Reports are published as new and significant material becomes available.
