HC Deb 12 November 1973 vol 864 cc4-5W
37. Dr. John Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry when he expects to receive the report of the Nuclear Inspectorate on the recent radiation leak at the Windscale factory of British Nuclear Fuels Limited; whether the report will be published in full; and if he will make a statement.
