Do you think it is fair that parents do not easily have access to find out if their child’s health is at risk because of a deadly substance in their school?
Do you think it is fair that a parent, praying for the wellbeing of their child, may have to wait up to 20 working days to find out this crucial information, after formally submitting a freedom of information request?
We don’t think so, and we’re sure you don’t either.
By signing our petition, you are helping parents across Wales to fight for the knowledge that they deserve. If you are a parent in Wales, signing this petition will help make it easier for you to find out if a harmful and potentially deadly substance is in your child’s school and how it is being managed.
We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to put measures in place to ensure that parents and guardians of children across Wales can easily access information about the presence and management of asbestos in all school buildings.
Given the health risks associated with the presence of asbestos in public buildings, we believe parents and guardians across Wales have;
- the right to know if asbestos is located in their school
- the right to know whether, where asbestos is present, it is being managed in line with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012
- the right to access that information easily online
