Collapse of Roof Beams Sir John Cass School, Stepney

In my circular letter dated 28 February 1974, written on behalf of both the Department of Education and Science and the Department of the Environment, as is this letter, I suggested the precautions which might be taken pending a report from the Building Research Establishment on their investigation into the causes of the failure of precast prestressed high alumina cement concrete roof beams over the swimming pool at the Sir John Cass Foundation and Red Coat School, Stepney. I also undertook to write to you again as soon as further information became available from the Building Research Establishment. An interim statement is given below. C.F.R. Barclay
