HC Deb 18 June 2003 vol 407 c247W
Mr. Peter Duncan

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on recent environmental monitoring results at Dundrennan. [119342]

Mr. Caplin

On 24 February 2003, we published our report on the use of new and more sensitive monitoring equipment to search for any previously undetected depleted uranium fragments around the gun positions and along the firing lines. The results of this survey confirm the findings of the routine environmental monitoring programme and the adequacy of the existing safety precautions. A copy of this report has been sent to the local council.
