Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health.: Radio-Active Substances (Control). (14 Dec 1932)

Sir Samuel Storey: 39. asked the Minister of Health whether he proposes to take steps to control the preparation, advertisement, and sale of remedies containing, or purporting to contain, radium or radioactive substances, in view of the danger to public health arising from the uncontrolled sale of these articles?

Orders of the Day — Cancer Bill (12 Dec 1938)

Mr Ernest Evans: ...not qualified may do more harm than good. There are in this country certain hospitals which, I believe, have facilities for diagnosis and operative treatment, but which have no radium or other radioactive substances for treating the disease in its malignant stage. What is the policy of Clause 1 in regard to those hospitals? Assuming that they have those facilities and a staff qualified...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Atomic Energy (30 Oct 1945)

Captain Albert Blackburn: ...control of atomic energy is perhaps the main subject which confronts us to-day. There is no time to go into detail here, but there is, in fact, an instrument which detects the release of radioactive materials. This instrument can be, and has been, put on an aeroplane, and by facing downwards it is able to detect all factories so far in use for the release of atomic energy. I am well...

Atomic Energy Commission (2 Aug 1946)

Captain Albert Blackburn: still a valuable and potent material which can perform certain functions. Here, obviously, is a case of non-dangerous activity connected with atomic energy, Let us say, here and now, that these radioactive by-products will be freely and openly shared with all the nations of the world. Even if the world should, unfortunately, have to perish, as has been suggested, in the harsh glare of...

Orders of the Day — Atomic Energy Bill (8 Oct 1946)

...medical use of atomic energy and nuclear physics which would enable us to cure certain diseases which have baffled us in the past. It is well known today that it is possible to make many substances radioactive which were not radioactive originally, or which are not normally radioactive, and that the radioactivity of these substances can be controlled because their activity disappears...

Orders of the Day — Atomic Energy Bill: Clause 2. — (General powers of Minister.) (11 Oct 1946)

Major Donald Bruce: ...not only includes the popular definition to which I have referred, but may also be held to include certain radio-active by-products produced by an atomic pile. The House should be aware that such radioactive emanations are already in fact being produced by the atomic piles which this country now possesses. A mild form —if I may use the term in a rather unskilled sense for the moment—of...

Orders of the Day — Atomic Energy Bill: Clause 6. — (Power to do work for purpose of discovering minerals.) (11 Oct 1946)

Mr John Wilmot: ...has addressed to me. The responsibility for survey and control in the Colonies rests with the Colonial Governments, under the direction of the Secretary of State for the Colonies. Colonies in which radioactive raw materials are thought to be likely have already made regulations governing the survey and exploitation of them. Those regulations follow a pattern suggested by the Ministry of...

Orders of the Day — Atomic Energy Bill: Clause 10. — (Control of production and use of atomic energy.) (11 Oct 1946)

Mr John Wilmot: ...for medical and biological purposes, and to require the Minister, as far as possible, to issue licences so that they may be used for those purposes also. As has been mentioned in the discussion, radioactive substances are already used as trace elements in medicine and biology. The radioactive properties enable such substances to be traced through human and plant systems, and they may be of...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs (27 Feb 1947)

Captain Albert Blackburn: ...optimism displayed about that. It would, relatively, not be so difficult to turn denatured plutonium into a bomb and, again, these factories could, in any event, be utilised for the production of radioactive weapons, which are, in many ways, as bad as the atomic bomb, on a colossal scale. I pass next, away from the subject of atomic energy, to other weapons of destruction. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply: Messrs. Thorium, Limited (Acquisition) (16 Jun 1947)

Mr John Wilmot: ...-in-trade and goodwill. The company is responsible, as my agent and under my direction, for running the Radiochemical Centre for the processing, packing and distribution of natural and artificial radioactive substances required for medical, scientific and industrial purposes. It would be contrary to the usual practice to disclose either the terms of the acquisition or the management fee.

Orders of the Day — Supply: MR. John Dugdale's Statement (8 Mar 1948)

Mr John Dugdale: ...must select a distance at which the ship, and more particularly the crew, can continue to operate with some degree of efficiency and ensure that both can survive the air blast, under-water shock, radioactivity and heat resulting from the bomb at that particular distance. The question of the protection of the crew against the heat and radioactive effects is particularly important. There...

Orders of the Day — Civil Defence (22 Mar 1948)

Sir John Anderson: should be possible to determine at what stage after an explosion it would be safe to allow people to come out into the open. In that connection it must be remembered that while the dispersal of radioactive material might be very widespread after an explosion, a great deal of the activity would die away after a comparatively short time. The activity is inversely proportionate to the...

Business of the House (13 May 1948)

Mr Herbert Morrison: ...of the Nurseries and Child Minders Regulation Bill—[Laughter.] It is a curious thing how by accident Parliament sometimes becomes a thoroughly logical institution. Also, Second Reading of the Radioactive Substances Bill [Lords], and Committee stage of the necessary Money Resolutions. If there is time, we shall also take the Report and Third Reading of the Law Reform (Personal Injuries)...

Atomic Energy (International Control) (14 May 1948)

Captain Albert Blackburn: ...render 400,000 more homeless. But that is not all. The ghost of the atomic bomb is far more deadly than the atomic bomb itself. Having dropped the atomic bomb in such as way as to distribute the radioactivity, the position is that for months one cannot go anywhere near the place where the radioactivity has been left. If anybody wanted to attack this country they would have only to drop...

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (28 Oct 1948)

Major Geoffrey Bing: thought by other scientists to be a rather exaggerated figure. They point out—I think possibly rightly, although I am not an expert on these matters—that this would have to be done by using radioactive poisons as well as atomic bombs, and that radioactive poisons, from their very nature, are inclined to attack and affect older people and children more than they attack the men of...

Orders of the Day — Wireless Telegraphy Bill: Clause 10. — (Regulations as to radiation of electro-magnetic energy, etc.) (25 Jan 1949)

Mr Hartley Shawcross: ...we wondered, as the hon. Member has wondered, whether it would be possible to transpose into this Bill the machinery—which is in fact the machinery in his Amendment—which was embodied in the Radioactive Substances Act. After giving the matter that careful consideration, we came to the conclusion that it was impracticable and undesirable to take that course, and I hope I shall be able...

Orders of the Day — Air-Raid Shelters (Demolition) (28 Oct 1949)

Wing Commander Ernest Millington: ...of bombing we were delivering ourselves—bombs of 12,000 and 20,000 lb. weight. Surely it is a little naive of the Under-Secretary to suggest that a brick wall is any protection at all against radioactive rays of an atomic explosion. There is some protection, but none of the materials which go to make up the air-raid shelters which we are discussing today in fact provide any protection...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Supply: Atomic Energy (Research) (3 Jul 1950)

Mr George Strauss: ...power reactors is now being prepared. Until some experience has been gained in the operation of such experimental reactors, it would be premature to estimate their prospects. Deliveries of radioactive isotopes from Harwell for medical, scientific and industrial use are meeting all home and export demands.
