HC Deb 18 July 1963 vol 681 cc90-1W
Mrs. Butler

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make arrangements for the radiation detection posts, now being built, to assist in the monitoring of radioactive contamination in peace time.

Mr. Brooke

No. The instruments at these posts are designed for war-time use, and are not sufficiently sensitive for the low levels of radiation which require to be measured in peace time. Other arrangements have been made for this.
