HC Deb 07 March 1990 vol 168 cc655-6W
Mr. Ieuan Wyn Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if, following the publication of the Gardner report on radiation risks, he will review current radiation exposure limits at facilities licensed to handle radioactive materials in Northern Ireland.

Mr. Needham

The legislation which specifies the maximum permissible occupational dose of ionizing radiation is currently under review in Great Britain. Should this review result in changes in the statutory limits applicable in Great Britain, similar changes will be made in the corresponding Northern Ireland legislation to ensure that identical legislative control exists throughout the United Kingdom.
