§ 62. Mrs. Joyce Butler
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what research is being undertaken into possible health hazards from colour television sets; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Summerskill
In 1969 and 1970 a study of British and imported colour television sets by the Radiological Protection Service of the Medical Research Council showed that X-ray emissions were well within the stringent limits of the relevant British Standard. More recent tests, conducted by the British Electro-technical Approvals Board, have shown a similar result. There appears to be no need for further research at present.
