In a series of reports by Lord Solly Zuckerman, a number key points were made to the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries, including:
1. That the OPs cause chronic health damage.
2. Those who use them must have weekly medical examinations.
3. Doctors must be educated in the symptoms and treatment of OP exposure.
Lord Zuckerman was quoted (below) in the Organophospate Report – Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust (2004):
Probably the most striking part of the OP (organophosphate) chemical saga is its relentless predictability. From the first warnings in 1951 about the dangers of OPs from Sir Solly Zuckerman right up to today’s Gulf War inquiries in the United States and the UK, the pattern has been the same: warnings followed by more research leading to conclusions which beget more research and more warnings before the cycle begins again. – Lord Solly Zuckerman
