DRAFT ANNOUNCEMENT

The United Kingdom will conduct a test series of nuclear explosions during 1957 in a remote part of the Pacific Ocean. The explosions will take place far from any inhabited islands and the tests will be so arranged as to avoid danger to persons or property. The tests will be high air bursts which will not involve heavy fall out. All safety precautions will be taken in the light of our knowledge and of experience gained from the tests of other countries.
