15 December 2020

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is responsible for workplace exposures in relation to radiation, not public exposures. This is the responsibility of Public Health England. Consequently, there have been no discussions with the Under -Secretary of Digital Infrastructure on HSE’s role in this area.
