Lafarge CementPosted by Sheila Oliver Sun, September 08, 2013 17:18:05

Dear Mr Bradshaw

As you are aware, the Lafarge Cement scandal of 2005/06 saw millions of tonnes of contaminated cement imported into the South West for public funded projects, including the 6 PFI schools. You are also aware that it was around the time that the Devon County Council considered my FOIA requests were vexatious.

It now transpires that the Lafarge Cement scam was not isolated to Devon but was worldwide ....

You are also aware that the City Council and DCC took no action to safeguard public funds or public safety and at this Juncture, they are unaware which projects were subjected to contaminated cement.

We now have a situation ongoing where the 6 PFI schools have contaminated drinking water and we also know the 6 PFI schools were built with contaminated cement. Hence, if the drinking water doesn't kill the kids, the building collapses will.

No wonder the DCC have paid out thousands of pounds fightning my FOIA case related to these schools.

I would strongly suggest/recommend you write to the DCC/City Council asking for a full list of affected projects from the Lafarge Cement ccam. As you are aware, contaminated cement was also sold to neighbouring counties in the SouthWest of England. Hence, I think it would be prudent of you to contact the relevant oversight authorities.

I would envisage to see some building/structural collapse in the not distant future caused by the Lafarge Contaminated Cement.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
