§ Mr. Flynn
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what amount of(a) toxic wastes and (b) radioactive wastes arising from military experiments exist at Potton island in Essex; under what environmental regulations these wastes are managed; what is the long-term plan for the disposal of these wastes; and what is his estimate of the total cost of this disposal strategy.
§ Mr. Neubert
There are no known toxic or radioactive wastes at Potton island. The area is being cleared of residual conventional munitions and explosives. To date this has cost some £40,000.
