Mr Reginald Moss: Will the right hon. Gentleman say a word about the complete gasification of coal which is also a process which leaves no residue in the form of coke?
Mr Reginald Moss: Has the hon. Member changed his view that the use of oil in this country should be subject to careful scrutiny, partly for strategic reasons and partly because it is imported? Has he forgotten that that is what he wrote in 1952 in "Ten Steps to Power"?
Mr Reginald Moss: asked the Postmaster-General whether the telephone pole placed in the front garden of 32, Wing-field Road, Coleshill, Birmingham, without the tenant's permission, has now been removed to another site.
Mr Reginald Moss: I am obliged to the hon. Member.
Mr Reginald Moss: asked the Secretary of State for Air the seating capacity in the recruits' mess at the Royal Air Force, Cardington; and the weekly intake of recruits.
Mr Reginald Moss: Is the Minister aware that in the same week that these Questions were put down the seating capacity was increased by about sixty, six officers were sent into the mess to organise seating and eating arrangements and a bigger supply of better quality food was supplied? I can tell the right hon. Gentleman exactly what the foods were.
Mr Reginald Moss: Will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to ensure that the best possible facilities are supplied to National Service men and others who may be stationed at Cardington? Will he also say whether there are canteens at Cardington which are not used?
Mr Reginald Moss: asked the Secretary of State for Air what facilities exist at the Royal Air Force, Cardington, for drying and ironing airmen's personal clothing.
Mr Reginald Moss: Are not there some recruits at Cardington who stay there for four or five weeks, who may have had previous training and who find that instructions received in their previous training, especially training on a cadet's course, cannot be carried out at Cardington through lack of these facilities?
Mr Reginald Moss: My information is five weeks.
Mr Reginald Moss: asked the Prime Minister (1) whether, in view of the acceptance by the Medical Research Council that the genetically significant dose from medical diagnostic radiology may be as much as 100 per cent. of natural background radiation, he will take steps to minimise all sources of manmade radiation in this country; (2) whether his attention has been called to paragraph 44 of Command Paper No....
Mr Reginald Moss: Is the Prime Minister aware that the difficulty here is that paragraph 25 of Cmnd. Paper 508 modifies the original opinion of the Medical Research Council that the genetically significant dose was one of 22 to 100, and that the Medical Research Council has now accepted the view that in countries with developed medical services the genetically significant dose from medical diagnostic radiology...
Mr Reginald Moss: asked the Prime Minister whether he will reconsider his decision not to terminate tests of nuclear devices in view of the fact that it has now been established that deposition of strontium 90 will exceed the level at which immediate consideration is required if tests continue, particularly in countries dependent upon a plant-type diet.
Mr Reginald Moss: Has the Prime Minister considered what will happen to the level of strontium 90 in bone if tests continue, either under assumption A or assumption B of the Report of the United Nations Scientific Committee, when perhaps under assumption A or B the level will be in excess of 10 units, and in certain circumstances in excess of 100 and even 200 units in certain parts of the world?
Mr Reginald Moss: asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he has noted that the causes of deaths in motor vehicle accidents in 1955 were head injuries as to nearly 66 per cent. in the case of pedestrians, over 77 per cent. in the case of pedal cyclists, 80 per cent. in the case of riders or passengers of motor cycles, and over 52 per cent. in the case of riders or passengers of other...
Mr Reginald Moss: Has the Joint Parliamentary Secretary seen cars with cushions? Has he ridden in cars which are cushioned? Do not they provide a method of preventing head injuries in road accidents? Has the hon. Gentleman seen a protective cap? Does he realise how important these would be for motorists in particular and perhaps for cyclists—not motor cyclists, but cyclists—in preventing head injuries?...
Mr Reginald Moss: asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works, as representing the Lord President of the Council, whether the results of the sample inquiries undertaken by the Road Research Laboratory, in collaboration with the Medical Research Council, into the nature of injuries sustained in road accidents are now available; and if he will make a statement.
Mr Reginald Moss: Can the hon. Gentleman say how long it will be before significant results become available?
Mr Reginald Moss: asked the Prime Minister whether he will now make a statement on nuclear and allied radiations, incorporating the latest information.
Mr Reginald Moss: Is the Prime Minister aware that his statement of last week was confined to radioactive fall-out and recent information which is available on fall-out in general? Has he considered the letter which I sent to him on Wednesday of last week in which I gave him exact references to the United Nations Report, to the Report of the Medical Research Council and to Command Paper 508? Is he aware that...
