enclose asbestos within schools) £163,555.

and 2016. £28,810. 

3. the amount of money spent on fines for breaches in the safe management
of asbestos in schools between 2006 and 2016. Nil

4. funding sought from the Department of Education and the Education
Funding Authority for the management and removal of asbestos from schools
between 2006 and 2016. Nil. The works have all been funded from the normal
allocation of funds, no additional specific requests have been sought for
