The UK Radon Association has received the support of Rt Hon Don Foster MP, who has said that he “welcomes the formation of the Association to carry forward valuable work”.
Mr Foster, who is the MP for Bath and current Liberal Democrat Chip Whip was Minister for the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) between 2012 – 2013, when he says that his “interest and concern about radon” caused him to instigate an update of the Building Regulations and associated guidance.
Mr Foster said, “I support the Association’s efforts to ensure that buildings, new and old, are safe and healthy to live and work in.”
The UK Radon Association is grateful to Mr Foster for his support and encouragement, and looks forward to the upcoming publication of new guidance for radon protective measures in new buildings, which is expected in early 2015.
