§ Mr. D. E. Thomas
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will outline the nature and extent of the review of his Department's peacetime emergency plans following the Chernobyl disaster; whether, when completed, he intends to publish it; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Fenner
My Department is playing its full part in the Government's review of contingency arrangements following the Chernobyl accident and will make any necessary changes to its emergency plans. Any revision of the Department's emergency arrangements would be notified to those required to implement them, as well as other departments and emergency services.
