HC Deb 07 June 1972 vol 838 c108W
Mr. Mudd

asked the Minister of State for Defence what safeguards and standby emergency procedures exist for the transportation of phenyl chloride from the nearest railhead to the Ministry of Defence Research Establishment, Nancekuke.

Mr. Ian Gilmour

The transport of special chemicals to the Chemical Defence Establishment, Nancekuke, is subject to the normal British Railways Board regulations for such goods. These provide for safeguards and procedures to be observed in the event of an incident. The establishment has arrangements to make specialist assistance available on request at any time of the day or night.
