SNP MP Amy Callaghan has slammed the council in her constituency for its mismanagement of a gas leak in a Bishopbriggs primary school. 

Balmuildy Primary School was evacuated over a carbon monoxide leak on Thursday, February 20. 

The SNP MP blasted the East Dunbartonshire Council after she was "kept in the dark" over the safety concerns. 

It has been discovered the council lost the gas safety check certificates they were legally required to hold. 

The Glasgow Times reported children attending the primary school fell ill again after the school reopened this week.

Parents were promised the school was deemed as “safe” for children to return despite officials not knowing if carbon monoxide was the trigger of making the children ill.

MP Callaghan revealed she has been inundated with questions from worried parents. 

She told the Kirkintilloch Herald: “Despite repeated requests for a meeting with senior management at the council and for answers to the many questions we were being asked, our emails were ignored.

"Being kept in the dark over health and safety concerns which involve children is not good enough and prevented us from representing the community.

“We will continue to press for a resolution to this which satisfies parents. No parent should be afraid to send their child to school and the council has done nothing to allay their fears by their incompetent response and lack of communication.”

Council leaders have defended the council's action and said they have prioritised the "safety and wellbeing" of the school. 

They have said they kept in contact with both Callaghan and MSP Rona Mackay who said the information provided by the council has been "scarce and non-transparent". 

Joint council leader Vaughan Moody said: “Our absolute priority following the evacuation at Balmuildy Primary School has been the safety and wellbeing of the school community.

“We ensured that the source of the carbon monoxide leak was identified and removed and that monitors were installed throughout the school to reassure them that the school is safe and there are no traces of gases in the school.

“Our commitment to communicate is with the school community and with our fellow elected members, who have been kept informed at every stage.”

Joint leader Andrew Polson hit back at Callaghan for "politicising" the inicident.

He added: “Senior Council Officers met with parents at the school on Monday 24 February prior to the school reopening on Tuesday 25 February and listened to their concerns.

“Emails from the MP and MSP have been responded to and they have both been advised where the information can be found.

"Our priority remains to conclude our investigations into this matter and to continue to communicate with the school community and the councillors here in East Dunbartonshire and it is shameful that our MP and MSP are politicising this incident.”
