What’s the latest on the Right to Know Asbestos in Schools Wales Petition?

The petition which attracted 448 votes simply called for transparency on the issue of asbestos in schools.

“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.”
