§ 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 ionizing656W 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.
