HC Deb 12 February 1993 vol 218 c827W
Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make it her policy to reduce the United Kingdom's radiation dose limit to 0.3 milliSieverts and the lifetime radiation dose limit to 21 mSv.

Mr. McLoughlin

I have been asked to reply.

The United Kingdom's radiation dose limits, for the public and for workers, comply with the current EC Eurotom directive on basic standards for radiation protection. Revision of this directive, and the dose limits therein, will begin later this year. My right hon. Friend has no plans to reduce dose limits in advance of revision of the directive.

Forward to
