The UK Parliament held a Westminster Hall Debate on the safety of 5G last week following Glastonbury Town Council’s resolution to oppose the roll-out of 5G under the Precautionary Principle.
Opening the debate, Tonia Antoniazzi MP said: “This Westminster Hall debate is indeed a timely one, as it comes off the back of an historic decision by Glastonbury Council to oppose the roll-out of 5G.”
Glastonbury’s historic motion read: This council has a social responsibility to protect the public and environment from exposure to harm, albeit unpredictable in the current state of scientific knowledge, and therefore opposes the roll-out of 5G in the Parish of Glastonbury – based on the precautionary principle – until further information is revealed from a newly convened 5G advisory committee (working group).
Having declared the intention to convene a working group to support the councillors in their understanding of the implications of 5G technology, members of the public with an interest and/or expertise in the subject are being invited to apply to join the group.
