asked the Secretary of State for Energy if he will make a full statement on the visit by five Soviet scientists to Dounreay; what consultations there were between the Atomic Energy Authority and his Department on this matter; and whether he himself or others of his Department's Ministers were consulted personally about the propriety of this visit in the light of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
