Asbestos in Schools

At the AGM in Brighton on 13th June 2018, TG members voted by majority to pass the motion that:

"TG urges HM Government, Local Authorities, and those responsible in law for the maintenance of educational facilities to ensure that every establishment that contains asbestos must produce an annual report for staff, pupils and their families. This report must explain how asbestos can affect health, where asbestos is present and how it is being monitored and maintained."

With the mandate passed, TG will seek to campaign in order to raise awareness of this issue. Further information on campaigning activity will feature in the Taking Action section below and in issues of Townswoman as and when it becomes available.
