To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the reply to the hon. Member for Davyhulme of 18 January, when he received the initial report of the National Radiological Protection Board into the mortality and cancer incidence in the United Kingdom participants in the United Kingdom atmospheric nuclear weapon tests and experimental programmes.
§ Mr. Sainsbury
My hon. Friend is presumably referring to a preliminary draft of the report which the NRPB plans to publish towards the end of this month. This draft was sent to the Department and others in late December for comment on factual accuracy.
