HC Deb 25 July 1986 vol 102 c571W
Mr. O'Brien

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has any plans to investigate the lack of monitoring facilities in the Yorkshire region for airborne dust caused by atmospheric nuclear tests.

Mrs. Rumbold

I am satisfied that the environmental radioactivity surveillance programme carried out by the National Radiological Protection Board and the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority is perfectly adequate to monitor fall out in Yorkshire and elsewhere in the United Kingdom arising from atmospheric nuclear tests.
