§ 89. Mr. Woof
asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that the European Atomic Organisation in its code of practice for safety regulations for industrial establishments using radioactive materials include a rule for keeping records of medical examination of exposed workers for 30 years after they have finished working in these materials; and whether he will introduce similar safety regulations in the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Gunter
We already have regulations which include this requirement covering people who work with sealed sources. I hope to make regulations next year to cover people working with unsealed sources. Workers in research and teaching establishments are covered by a Code of Practice which also includes this requirement.
