§ Malcolm Bruce
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills if he will list the buildings occupied by his departmental and agency staff which require(a) remedial work on and (b) removal of asbestos; what this work will cost; what budgets are available for this work for (i) 2004 and (ii) 2005; and what budget is available for future asbestos surveys. 
§ Mr. Stephen Twigg
Within the buildings on the Department's four sites there are only two buildings that currently contain the material, one in London and one in Darlington. The necessary control measures are now in place, which include a programme of regular monitoring and review. Costs for this work are not available and there is no set budget in place for future work associated with asbestos management.
