Mr. David Steel
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how much milk has been withdrawn from the ordinary market in the immediate area of the Windscale atomic plant in each of the years since the reactor was put in operation.
No milk has been withdrawn from the ordinary market in the vicinity of the Windscale atomic plant except in 1957, when there was an accident to an early type of reactor which then ceased operation. On that occasion, about 0·5 million gallons of milk were withdrawn from the market as a precautionary measure.
