§ Mr. Kynoch
[holding answer 20 December 1995]: United Kingdom Automatic Energy Authority emergency procedures are exercised regularly, in liaison with the emergency services, the local authority, central Government and other agencies as necessary. The off-site response is co-ordinated by the police who, with other emergency services and Highland regional council, have plans for managing the off-site aspects of any civil nuclear emergency at Dounreay.
