Contamination By Rechem

EDM number 520 in 1992-93, proposed by Llew Smith on 15/07/1992.

That this House requests the appropriate select committee to investigate revelations made in the debate in this House on 10th July that ReChem exceeded their own chosen standards for measuring contamination by over 2,000 times, the statement following the debate that levels of contamination were arithmetically incorrect when ReChem had previously confessed to the BBC that they were true, the attempts to deceive the general public as to the true level of contamination by issuing totally unrelated test results, the issue of whether ReChem informed the Health and Safety Executive of the true 1987 test results and informed the University of East Anglia of the 1987 test results, the Welsh Office statement that PCBs are completely destroyed at temperatures above 1,000 degrees, the issue of whether ReChem has identified the cause of the 1987 and 1989 contamination levels, the attempts to deceive the general public by falsely claiming that the results were already public knowledge and that they had also been discussed between the parties involved, with an independent third party in attendance, and why Michael Sanger, head of Rechem's Special Operations Unit, was removed from that position and finally forced out after discovering and reporting to their then managing director, Malcolm Lee, unacceptably high levels of contamination.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs.
