Mr. Ron Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will ask the Health and Safety Executive to investigate the discharge of their health and safety obligation by the contractors and subcontractors currently removing asbestos from Littlebrook power station, Dartford.
§ Mr. Gummer
I am advised by the Health and Safety Executive that during the period of asbestos stripping at Littlebrook power station the site has been visited by inspectors of the executive's local construction group and field consultant group, the most recent visits being on 6 and 25 June 1984. On neither occasion was asbestos stripping work in progress. Further visits will be made by inspectors in the near future and my hon. Friend the Member for Dartford, in whose constituency this power station is, will be kept fully informed.
