Rhun ap Iorwerth responds to two school closures on Ynys Môn due to concrete concerns

Responding to the announcement that Ysgol David Hughes and Ysgol Uwchradd Caergybi on Ynys Môn will not re-open tomorrow (5 Sept) due to concerns relating to change of guidance on RAAC concrete, Rhun ap Iorwerth, Member of the Senedd for Ynys Môn and Leader of Plaid Cymru said:

“The situation is a worrying one – I have already discussed it with Welsh Government’s Education Minister, and I understand from Anglesey County Council that they have been monitoring the buildings that contain RAAC annually as is required of them.

“I’m grateful to Anglesey Council for responding promptly and effectively. The priority now is to ensure that the further necessary security assessments that are required take place as soon as possible, and I will ensure that I am kept updated by Anglesey County Council and Welsh Government. It will then be necessary to find out why and how information was not shared earlier by the UK Government. Any parents who are seeking further information are welcome to contact my office.”
