HL Deb 04 May 1977 vol 382 c1105WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the report on the usefulness of peaceful nuclear explosions being prepared under the auspices of the International Atomic Energy Agency has been completed; whether it, or its conclusions, or a resumé of its conclusions are to be published, and if so when: if not, whether they will make a Statement.


The International Atomic Energy Agency's Ad hoc Advisory Group on Peaceful Nuclear Explosions is now aiming to complete its report by September 1977. It should be issued in final form shortly thereafter and circulated to member Governments. Such Agency documents are generally available on request.
