Motion text

That this House applauds the work New Zealand Nuclear Test Veterans Study - a cytogenetic analysis conducted by Dr Al Rowland of the Institute of Molecular Biosciences, Massey University, New Zealand, into the effects of nuclear weapons tests on navy veterans; recognises that the results of this research clearly demonstrate that those exposed to nuclear radiation in Operation Grapple suffered, without their prior knowledge, exposure to dangerously high levels of radiation that has resulted in long-term genetic damage; and urges the Government to carry out similar tests to ensure that British personnel involved in Operation Grapple can see whether they have suffered similar DNA damage to their counterparts from New Zealand.
