Can the Prime Minister say whether the incidence in Scotland is heavier than in other parts of the United Kingdom? Is he aware that, after having studied the statement which he made on Tuesday, one is left with the feeling that there is a great deal of scientific uncertainty about the threat of strontium 90? In order to give the negotiations at Geneva a chance of making faster progress in an atmosphere of greater good will, will he make an announcement on behalf of Her Majesty's Government that we are willing to give up our tests?
