§ 40. Mr. Baird
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what action he is taking to protest to the French Government about the dangers of radioactive fall-out likely to arise from the testing of a French hydrogen bomb in the Sahara, in view of the consequent dangers of radioactive dust falling out over territories for which Her Majesty's Government are responsible.
§ Mr. Profumo
The French Government have stated that their test—which will be of an atomic, not a hydrogen, bomb—will be held in such a way as to cause no damage to health in neighbouring territories.
