No asbestos falling from the roofs at the Montserrat Secondary School

MSS-Press-ConferenceThe Hon Minister of Education Colin Riley and his purpose team, joined by the Hon Premier Reuben Meade, moved to dispel the first information to hit the scene that there was asbestos falling out of the roofs at the Montserrat Secondary school buildings. They also addressed issues arising from the confirmation that there are buildings with ‘asbestos material’.

The team confirms that there was no asbestos falling from the roofs at the MSS but asbestos was present in the buildings and was of no danger to anyone’s health. Listen to Owen Lewis, PIU director (left) on asbestos: 

However the very presence of globally ‘band’ construction material is cause for concern and the matter is to be dealt with as a matter of emergency.

Immediately there are no classes held on the MSS campus and they will be placed in various other schools, with classes this week held only for the fifth form at the old Salem primary school. Dir. of Education Glenn Francis explains.

More later.
