P-04-522 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;
• to know whether, where asbestos is present, it is being managed in line with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012;
• to access that information easily online
This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 26/01/2021.
The Committee considered the further correspondence received and the provision of high-level information relating to the presence of asbestos within school buildings in Wales. The Committee acknowledged that this does not go as far as the petitioner is seeking, however, given the detailed consideration given to this petition since it was first submitted, the Committee agreed that there was little further action that it would usefully be able to take at this time. Members agreed to close the petition and thank the petitioner.
