HC Deb 17 July 1986 vol 101 c587W
Mr. Corbyn

asked the Paymaster General what recent advice has been received from the Advisory Committee on Safety at Nuclear Installations—ACSNI—following the accident at Chernobyl; and if he will make a statement on his Department's reactions to this advice.

Mr. Trippier

Very few technical details on the Chernobyl accident have been released by the Russians so far. The Advisory Committee on the Safety of Nuclear Installations is, therefore, not in a position to make any sensible assessment or give any useful advice at this stage. The ACSNI is continuing to take a close interest in the matter.
