HC Deb 30 June 1986 vol 100 c445W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will detail the exact routes and the land or sea which is flown over by aeroplanes carrying radioactive materials.

Mr. Michael Spicer

The national regulations governing transport of radioactive materials by air are based on the technical instructions of the international Civil Aviation Authority which do not depend for their effectiveness on the choice of any particular route. Accordingly the Department does not collect detailed information of the kind requested.
