This year`s Action Mesothelioma Day has now taken place.
I posted short articles on some of the events that took place around the country earlier today at http://bookshelvesandbrownale.blogspot.com and http://webdub.blogspot.com. If you would like more information about the day, please contact either Liz Darlison or Tracey Heseltine at www.mesothelioma.uk.com.
I had intended to post a fourth bulletin on the subject of AMD on this blog before it happened, but with one thing and another it didn`t get done.
Slightly belatedly, I will just now mention a couple of sources that I`d intended to highlight in that bulletin.
One is a report on asbestos in schools from the All Party Parliamentary Group on Occupational Health and Safety. As you might know, APPG`s are informal groupings of MPs usually from the Con,Lab and LibDem parties who share an interest in a particular issue or subject.
Although the APPGOHS has close links with the trade union movement, if you thought it was Labour-dominated you`d be wrong - as far as I can see, it is divided evenly between Labour and Coalition MPs.
The report can be found here ;
The other couple of items I`d wanted to mention are here ;
As I`ve said before, anything anyone can do to help publicise the issues surrounding asbestos, by means of blogs and social networking sites would be very much appreciated.
