HC Deb 06 November 2001 vol 374 c224W
Mr. Swayne

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what stocks of iodine doses are held against the possibility of nuclear accidents.[12616]

Jacqui Smith

The exact figure is not held centrally by the Department as stocks are held in locations close to operating nuclear installations, however, I have been advised that nearly three million tablets were produced in 1998 and are held by the various parts of the nuclear industry throughout the United Kingdom including Ministry of Defence sites.
