HC Deb 31 October 1975 vol 898 c622W
Mr. Hoyle

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what percentage of plutonium has been found in plaice eggs off the coast near the Wind-scale atomic plant in Cumbria.

Mr. Strang

The radiation dose from plutonium received by plaice eggs collected in the vicinity of the Windscale plant discharge pipeline is insignificant. It is estimated to be less than 1 per cent. of that received from natural activity.
