HC Deb 15 December 1989 vol 163 c882W
Mr. Wallace

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list the locations in the United Kingdom for which the Meteorological Office can readily supply information regarding average daily temperatures allowing for a wind chill factor; and if he will make a statment.

Mr. Neubert

Wind chill factors which essentially relate to humans or animals in outdoor conditions can be calculated in a number of ways. The simplest involves temperature and wind speed. Such data are received hourly by the Meteorological Office every day of the year from 97 stations in the United Kingdom.

I will write to the hon. Member listing the name and location of each of these stations.
