§ Mr. Penhaligon
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many cases have been drawn to his attention of properties being insulated by the use of loose asbestos; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir George Young
One case has been drawn to my right hon. Friend's attention, by the hon. Member. Subsequent inquiries indicate that the use of loose asbestos as an insulant in buildings has been very rare indeed.
