HC Deb 23 October 1961 vol 646 cc16-7W
55. Mrs. Butler

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, what examination of the strontium 90 content of milk is now being made by the Milk Marketing Board.

Mr. Soames

None. But the Agricultural Research Council has, for the past three years, measured the strontium 90 content of milk and other foods, and a statement reviewing the position on radioactive fall-out will be made to the House by my hon. Friend, the Parliamentary Secretary for Science tomorrow.
