HC Deb 30 July 1962 vol 664 c14W
Mr. Mason

asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science for what specific purposes are the two irradiation plants being built under licences issued by the Atomic Energy Authority.

Mr. Denzil Freeth

The Authority tells me that both the plants are to be used for the sterilisation of medical equipment—in the one case disposable syringes, and in the other surgical sutures.
