§ Mr. Marland
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he proposes to publish a report on the lessons learnt from the Chernobyl disaster so far as his responsibilities for agriculture are concerned; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Donald Thompson
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.
