The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Occupational Health and Safety has published a number of reports on asbestos. Most recently, the APPG published a report, in October 2015, which called on the Government to remove all asbestos by 2035, and by 2028 in public buildings such as school. The report, titled ‘Why Britain needs an eradication law’ is available here.
