HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 cc219-20W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the concern felt by people in areas of the United Kingdom where nuclear waste now travels prior to its disposal, on such questions as safety and contamination, if he will agree to the appointment of an independent committee of inquiry to go into all aspects of these questions and report to the House thereon.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

No. I am satisfied that the present arrangements are fully adequate to ensure the safety of the public.
