MPs call for asbestos removal legislation
A report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Occupational Safety and Health is calling for the accelerated removal of all asbestos from Britain.
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Occupational Safety and Health believes that the time has come to put in place regulations requiring the safe, phased and planned removal of all the asbestos that still remains in place.
It is calling for legislation with a timetable for the eradication of asbestos in every workplace in Britain. It also wants a national programme of asbestos surveys and all home-buyers’ surveys to include asbestos reports.
