§ Mr. Lomas
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if any international body of which the United Kingdom is a member is concerned with nuclear fall-out and the possible danger to mankind.
§ Mr. Luard
The United Nation's Scientific Committee on the Effects of80W Atomic Radiation is the main international body concerned with the health and safety aspects of radioactive fall-out. The United Kingdom has been a member of the Committee since its inception in 1956, and has played an active part in its work. I have placed a copy of its latest report in the Library of the House.
