Mobile Phones and Health

In December 2010, Esterson contributed to a House of Commons on the subject of the health effects of mobile phones. A transcript of the complete debate can be read on Hansard: http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201011/cmhansrd/cm101220/debtext/101220-0004.htm

Esterson stated that he had been contacted by his constituent Eileen O'Connor, of the Board of Trustees of EM Radiation Research Trust[2]. Andy Lewis of the Quackometer looked at EM Radiation Research in 2007: http://www.quackometer.net/blog/2007/05/wi-fi-quackery-and-parliament.html

Science Funding

In October 2010, Bill Esterson signed Early Day Motions 707: Government Funding for UK Science[3], and 767: Science is Vital Campaign[4]. Both motions supported investment in science in the face of cuts anticipated in the coalition government's forthcoming spending review, although Esterson signed them after the conclusions of the spending review had been announced.
