MPs back call for mast probe
Political correspondent A Commons call for new research into the health effects of telecommunications masts has been backed by 28 MPs. A special Parliamentary motion expressed concern about the possibility of short-term memory loss and other illnesses caused by “low energy electromagnetic fields”. It urged the DTI, and the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions to commission the research and, if necessary, introduce planning guidelines to stop the siting of the masts in populated areas such as on school roofs.
