 Commenting on Action Mesothelioma Day, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:
“Today being Action Mesothelioma Day, our thoughts are with all of those affected by this terrible and entirely preventable disease.
“Mesothelioma only occurs where asbestos exposure occurs
“Given the well-known risks associated with asbestos, it is scandalous that this lethal fibre is still present in the vast majority of schools.
“The only safe asbestos is removed asbestos, and the Government should bring forward plans for a phased removal of asbestos without delay.”
