§ Mr. Llew Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will assess the advantages of reconstituting the Advisory Committee on the Safe Transport of Radioactive Materials. 
§ Ms Glenda Jackson
The Advisory Committee on the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material (ACTRAM) was wound up in January 1989 after the Secretary of State for Transport and the Chairman of the Health and Safety Commission had agreed that its work had been satisfactorily completed. I am satisfied that ACTRAM's conclusions remain valid and that there is no need to reconstitute the Committee.
