Scope and content

Correspondence, press coverage and notes re asbestos issues at St Brendan's school, Yoker near Glasgow. Also includes copies from an inspection of the school, dated 23 August 1982.

Among the correspondents were councillor Jim Bannerman OBE, MP Donald Dewar, union representatives and the office of the Procurator Fiscal, Glasgow.

A routine inspection in August 1982 had discovered defects in ceiling finishes containing amosite (brown asbestos). Rushworth and others did not find the Authority response adequate and proceeded to instigate discussion on how the asbestos regulations and the recent conclusions of the Advisory Committee on Asbestos (ACA) should be interpreted.
