I hope these clinics extend to staff and parents of other schools in caerphilly that has asbestos because it is no secret that this is not the only school that has it.

Is this going to be extended to all user and staff in public buildings that were built in the 50's to 80's that contain asbestos. but the health issues from asbestos are not instant it can be 20-30 years later and not a nice way to go either.

as long as it has not been disturbed in any way then there should be no exposure, but as we all know you will get some who just like to vandialise and it justice served then.
