HC Deb 23 May 1966 vol 729 c1W
3. Mr. Tom Driberg

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will instruct the British representatives in the World Health Organisation to propose a special investigation of the effects on human and animal health of radiation leakage after underground nuclear tests in Nevada.

Mr. George Thomson

No. As the Prime Minister made clear to my hon. Friend on 12th May, no United States underground test has caused radioactive debris to be present outside the territorial limits of the United States and there has been no danger to the health of people inside or outside the United States.
