HC Deb 08 December 1970 vol 808 c70W
Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will take steps to promote international study of the growing problem of the disposal of solid radioactive waste, at present packaged and dumped in the Atlantic, and its effect on the environment in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

We have played a leading part in two international studies of the disposal in the sea of solid radioactive waste conducted by the European Nuclear Energy Agency and the International Atomic Energy Agency respectively, and we are continuing to participate in reviews of the situation by these bodies. I do not therefore consider that any further initiative for international study is called for.
