Dear Freedom Of Information,
Thank you for your reply, I note from the COMARE web site that the COMARE work programme includes Dalgety Bay
"The appearance of radium particles at Dalgety Bay first came on the committee’s work programme back in 1990. The discovery of much smaller particles recently has seen this item reappear for further consideration. A site visit by members of the Dounreay Working Group was carried out on 13th May 2008. The committee is continuing to liaise with the MoD and SEPA on this matter. The committee will also be kept aware of other similar contaminated sites as and when issues arise"
In the light of this and your reply can you please confirm that COMARE provided no advice to SEPA or the MOD
