Ever growing Concerns surrounding Mobile Masts and their Effects

Beneath is a transcript from a reply I have received from Phil Wills, MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Education & Skills:

Thank you for writign to me regarding the risks posed to our children with regard to mobile phone technology.

My position as Liberal Democrat Secretary of State for Education and Skills is impacted by the ever growing concerns surrounding mobile masts and their effects. However, in my role as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on mobil communications, we are constantly analysing and scrutinizing the mobil industry.

The group published a report in July which included a list of 19 recommendations which have been submitted to the Government. We are currently in the process of ascertaining what the Government intends to do with the recommendations and the report and will continue to push this issue.

I have also ben involved in a campaign in my local constituency to prevent the erection of a mobile phone masts near three schools. The case has gone all the way to the High Curt and the court of appeal. The appeal court decided to uphold the mobile operators plans to erect a mast near three schools which has come as a body blow to concerned parents throughout the country. The effect of this decision is to sweep aside the recommendations in the Stewart Report and give mobile phone operators freedom to site masts on or near school playing fields throughout the United Kingdom.

However, I can assure you that your concerns along with those of parents across the country will be fed into the work that the group does. We continue to push the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister to investigate possible amendments to the Governments guidelines and to take on the information provided by the Stewart Report which among other things advises a precautionary principle to be taken with regards to children.

AS A PRACTICAL PIECE OF ADVICE ON THE ISSUE OF MOBILE PHONE MASTS, CONTACTING MAST ACTION UK OR MAST SANITY SHOULD PROVE INVALUABLE AS THEY ARE AN EXCELLENT SOURCE OF INFORMATION.



English Nature shows interest

An encouraging response I think from English Nature, courtesy of their Chief Scientist, Dr Duff. Transcript as beneath.

I must add that this is of distinct difference to replies from DEFRA who state 'our view remains that there is a lack of conclusive evidence that radiation from telecommunication masts has important adverse effects on wildlife...I am afraid that there are no plans by this Department to conduct further research in this area at the present time' - replies to Simon Harding, Species Policy Advisor, simon.r.harding@defra.gsi.gov.uk

Transcript from English Natures reply:
I am replying on behalf of our Chief Executive, who will see both your letter and this reply. As you note in your letter the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology completed a review of the evidence for effects of microwave radiation on wildlife for English Nature in 2002. We are very grateful to you for alerting us to some additional research carried out since then. Our toxicology specialist has asked CEH to examine the additional reports of adverse effects which you have referred to in your letter. We will examine their conslusions carefully and I assure you that we will be using this in any subsequent advice to Government on further research or action needed.

Thank you for highlighting this additional source of evidence and for providing details of the relevant references which has greatly helped us to follow up your concerns.
