Description
Aldermaston inquiry author and radiation expert Edward Pochin describes conditions at the plant and the plutonium poisoning of three workers there. He says the majority of workers had a normal level of plutonium. Defence Secretary Fred Mulley says the Government is aware of the problems and seeking to rectify them; he denies that the buildings are in a very poor state. Mulley adds that the delay has not had a serious impact on the country’s defences. Vivian White reports.
