The K-shell internal ionisation during beta decay has been treated relativistically on the basis of the wavefunction proposed by Greenland and Irvine (1972). The total ionisation probabilities are calculated and compared with those from the hydrogenic wavefunctions. Comparison with experimental data indicates that a discrepancy still remains between theory and experiment. A possible reason for this discrepancy is discussed.
