HC Deb 01 March 1994 vol 238 c681W
Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what evaluation her Department has made of the health effects of reprocessing, other than of radioactive material, at Sellafield.

Mr. Sackville

The health effects of reprocessing at the Sellafield site are a matter for the Health and Safety Executive, or where effects might extend beyond the site boundary, for Her Majesty's inspectorate of pollution. The Committee on Mutagenicity of Chemicals in Food, Consumer Products and the Environment has advised on the mutagenicity of chemicals used at the. British Nuclear Fuels Ltd. Sellafield site in 1991 and its advice is published in its annual report for 1991, copies of which are in the Library.
