HC Deb 28 January 1981 vol 997 cc469-70W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food why the Advisory Committee on Pesticides has refused to make public the results of surveys which it claimed showed there was no evidence of dangerous levels of 2,4,5-T in the air after spraying; and if he will ensure that this is now done.

Mr. Wiggin

The committee has not withheld any such survey data. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of its recent report which gives details of all the surveys and other data upon which the committee based its advice concerning the safety of 2,4,5-T products.

Forward to
