Radon measurements in Rossington Colliery

Dennis May made this Freedom of Information request to Public Health England

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Public Health England,

Please can you supply as a Freedom of Information or Environmental Information request, details of any Radon measurements taken in or at Rossington Colliery near Doncaster. This follows an unsuccessful request to the Coal Authority, who state they do not hold such information. I was informed by an ex-NCB occupational health practitioner that such measurements were taken some years ago.

Please can you also supply any information that would enable a reasonable comparison of the levels to be made between Rossington and other collieries, e.g a report summary or such like.

Yours faithfully,

Dennis May
