HC Deb 10 April 1987 vol 114 c457W
Mr. Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement about the history of the British atomic weapons trials in Australia, published by Her Majesty's Stationery Office.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

The book "A Very Special Relationship" provides a factual account of the British atomic weapon trials in Australia based mainly on a large volume of contemporary material, and also evidence provided during the inquiries of the Australian Royal Commission. It has been written by Lorna Arnold, a research assistant under Professor Margaret Gowing at the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority. I have placed a copy in the Library today.
