HC Deb 09 February 1995 vol 254 c342W
Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for line Environment if he has yet discovered the source of the depleted uranium tailings found at Poplar farm, Chelveston.

Mr. Atkins

Her Majesty's inspectorate of pollution is investigating the origins of the depleted uranium swarf found in a field at Poplar farm, Chelveston, Northamptonshire. It has uncovered evidence which may point to the likely source of at least some of the material. However, the investigation is continuing and at this stage it would be premature to release information until all the evidence has been fully substantiated and future action decided.
