[holding answer 26 October 1999]: The Institute of Occupational Health at the University of Birmingham, in collaboration with the National Radiological Protection Board, is undertaking the study of occupational exposure to radio frequency fields. I am advised the current intention is that the study, which is funded by the industry together with a contribution from the Ministry of Defence, will be completed by the end of 2001.
