HC Deb 24 January 2002 vol 378 c1065W
Miss McIntosh

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what assessment she has made of the World Health Organisation's policy of prudent avoidance to exposure to electromagnetic fields; and if she will make a statement. [29256]

Mr. Wilson

The World Health Organisation, in its publication "Electromagnetic Fields and Public Health—Extremely low frequency fields and cancer", Fact Sheet No. 263, October 2001, refers to certain precautionary measures that can be taken by Government, industry and individuals. Several of these measures are already in place in the UK.
