HC Deb 09 November 1976 vol 919 cc141-2W
50. Mr. Alexander Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what quantity and type of explosive was transported within the United Kingdom in each of the last three years; and by what methods.

Dr. Gilbert

Explosives are moved within the United Kingdom both by road and rail under statutory safety procedures. It would not be in the public interest to release details of the quantity and type of explosives transported.
