Dear Public Health England,

That is your response to an earlier FOI

Could you disclose

(1) Have you been consulted about Manston since your last response ?

(2) The Thanet rates of COPD MS ME/CFS Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Ectopic Pregnancy Cancer Stroke and Aneurism. And whether occurrence is in clusters.


(a) The Environment Agency say detail testing is scheduled for Manston but I do not know if this is the toxic legacy of firefighting foams being tested across the world.

(b) A straw poll of nine women from one Margate primary school class of 1980s results are 3 have MS 2 have ME/CFS and 3 have polycystic ovary syndrome. All 3 MS and one of the ME were also childhood neighbours.

(c) The area had in proximity Manston Fire School, GEC (who allegedly buried hundreds of tonnes of PCB laden transformer oils, Thor WMD mercury and fire retardant chemicals and Sericol who leaked tonnes of cyclohexanone into water supply 1963 to 1993. A toxic quadrangle.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Card
