Lying about having complied with BS10175

Dodgy LibDems Toxic School

In one of their very rare responses to an Executive Council Meeting question from me, the Executive Councillors lied in claiming BS10175 had been complied with.  It wasn't until October 2009 when they were forced to prove to a public inquiry that the proposed primary school site wasn't contaminated.  At this point they did finally comply with BS10175 and the entire site was found to be contaminated with lead, arsenic and brown asbestos, as they knew all along.

The second contamination report was carried out by Urban Vision (Greater Manchester Geological Unit) - the same people who claimed the site was safe for a primary school with no contamination remediation.   They should have been off the case after their first, substandard investigations.
