Reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC)

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

BBC News is keeping us informed of the problems associated with buildings constructed of RAAC, particularly schools and hospitals. As reported, the Health and Safety Executive has said that RAAC is now beyond its lifespan and may "collapse with little or no notice".

I would like to know, please:
1) Which properties the BBC uses that included RAAC in their construction.
2) In the light of recent events, what plans, including timescales, are in place to inspect and repair these buildings.
3) What staff relocation will be necessary as a result of these inspections.

Again, as reported, incidents had led to there being a "heightened safety risk regarding the usage of RAAC" .I think we can all agree that keeping BBC employees safe is a priority.

Yours faithfully,

Mr A Willmore
