BUSINESS QUESTION – ASBESTOS IN SCHOOLS – 8 December 2016

Dr Julian Lewis: Following a remarkable and brave interview on this morning’s edition of “Woman’s Hour”, which I recommend that hon. Members listen to online, may we have a statement about the delayed-action but deadly threat posed to pupils and teachers by the continuing presence of asbestos in schools?

[The Leader of the House of Commons (Mr David Lidington): I did not hear the interview on “Woman’s Hour” this morning, but I will highlight my right hon. Friend’s interest to the relevant Minister at the Department for Education and ask for a letter to be sent to him.]
