HC Deb 16 January 1990 vol 165 c169W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list for south and west Yorkshire, the comprehensive plans and programmes for implementation of procedures that have been made for the fire and ambulance services to deal with accidents on railways or road involving external emissions of gamma radiation, and for police officers and other workers immediately affected.

Mr. Atkins

I have been asked to reply.

The provision of emergency plans is the responsibility of the consignors of radioactive material. These plans are exercised regularly with the emergency services, which have the relevant operational responsibilities.
