Asbestos: Documents

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 7 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many asbestos records in each of the 14 categories for which HM Inspector of the Health and Safety Executive is the enforcing authority required to be received by the Health and Safety Executive have been destroyed since 1984. (278978)

For records associated with asbestos licensing, HSE's Asbestos Licensing Unit (ALU) maintains its own electronic database containing records of applications and licences from 1984 onwards and holds details of work notifications received since 2001. This information is of a general nature concerning the licence holding organisations and would not normally contain any records on named individual employees. No records have been deleted by ALU.
