Ukraine Ban on Asbestos

I and the other signatories of this letter (Ian Lavery, Anas Sarwar, and Stephen Timms)  have been working for many years with asbestos victims, trade unionists and health and safety campaigners to eradicate the scourge caused by the UK’s use of six million tonnes of asbestos and progress efforts for improved conditions and medical treatments for the injured.

We whole-heartedly endorse Ukraine’s determination to protect its citizens by ending asbestos use and beginning the onerous process of addressing the multitude of challenges created by the incorporation of this deadly carcinogen into the national infrastructure.
