HC Deb 07 June 1976 vol 912 cc529-30W
33. Mr. Moonman

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will now review all radioactive procedures in the light of the incident of the leakage from drums of radioactive waste.

Mr. Bishop

Friend and I are satisfied that the procedures and methods used in radioactive waste disposals which have been evolved in the light of 20 years experience are adequate and a special review is not necessary. The leakages from dumped containers referred to recently in a North American context have always been taken fully into account in considering the safety of our disposal operations.
