HC Deb 19 March 1999 vol 327 c863W
Mr. Steinberg

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to review the hazards of exposure to depleted uranium. [74714]

Mr. Doug Henderson

None. The hazards from depleted uranium are well documented in the scientific literature and are reviewed as new information becomes available. I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by my noble Friend the Minister for Defence Procurement on 17 February 1998,Official Report, House of Lords, column 21 and that given by the Under-Secretary of State for Defence on 13 May 1998, Official Report, columns 128–29. I have today placed a copy of the Ministry of Defence's Report on Depleted Uranium in the Libraries of the House.
