Government urged to act on hazardous materials in schools


The Canberra Liberals are calling on the ACT government to immediately outline a comprehensive plan to address student and staff safety in our schools.

The ACT Council of Parents and Citizens Associations has raised concerns about neglected school infrastructure and inadequate plans to address hazardous materials.

Shadow Minister for Education Jeremy Hanson says the government must immediately publish the full list of schools affected by lead paint and asbestos issues, along with a detailed remediation plan.
