Use of glyphosate in children centre outdoor areas

We're waiting for Ashley Mills to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Kent County Council,

I understand you operate a number of children's centres across the county. On a recent visit to Tina Rintoul centre in Hersden I noticed the smell of glyphosate in the outdoor area and there was visible evidence of herbicide use.

Can you please answer the following questions:

1 ) Can you confirm the use of glyphosate/other poisons at the Tina Rintoul and other centres?
2) What is your policy on the use of glyphosate/ other poisons in children's centres?
3) Are you aware that the International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies glyphosate as "probably carcinogenic to humans" (https://www.iarc.fr/featured-news/media-...
4) What risk assessment was carried out before exposing 0-5 year olds to glyphosate?
5) What evidence do you have that glyphosate is safe for 0-5 year olds to ingest?
6) Have you considered manual removal of weeds in areas where 0-5 year olds are regularly present?

Regards

Yours faithfully,

Dr Ashley Mills
