§ 64. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the result of his inquiries as to the effect on fish in the North Sea and other seas used 123W by British fishermen of substances dropped into those seas in the course of nuclear tests, including a statement of the distances such substances travel from sea to sea.
§ Mr. Scott-Hopkins
My right hon. Friend is satisfied, from investigations carried out, that the effects from nuclear tests on the fish in these areas and on consumers have been quite insignificant. The movement of radioactivity in the sea has not been important in these areas.
