HC Deb 21 March 1991 vol 188 c227W
Mr. McMaster

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what documents relating to British nuclear tests have been released under sections 3(4) and 5(1) of the Public Records Act 1958; what documents have been withheld; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

Listings of documents related to the British nuclear weapons tests and experiments, whether released or withheld on grounds of national security under the Public Records Act 1958, could not be compiled and published without disproportionate cost.
