School Asbestos 'National Scandal'
3 February 2012
Some of you may have read in the Telegraph and other news sources, that a report published by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Occupational Safety and Health, looked into official figures showing more than 75% of state schools are exposing children, teachers and other staff to the carcinogenic material.
It comes after more than 140 teachers died from the rare asbestos-related cancer mesothelioma in the past 10 years, with research in the US suggesting over 100 people will die every year in the UK because of exposure at school.
