30. Mr. Gwilym Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what representations he has received on the dangers of nuclear explosions in East Anglia and in other parts of Great Britain, arising from military accidents; what steps he is taking to reduce such dangers; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Pym

I have received a few letters from Members of Parliament and members of the public about the incident at RAF Lakenheath in 1956. I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Bury St. Edmunds (Mr. Griffths) on 9 November.—[Vol. 973, c. 321–2.]
