Recognising the 50th Anniversary of the Aberfan Disaster

At the last EIG conference the Ansel Dunham lecture was presented by Dr Alan Cobb. The topic was regarding the Aberfan Disaster and was titled "The Aberfan disaster and its continuing relevance 50 years on".  The EIG felt it important to recognise the 50th Anniversary of the  Aberfan Disaster and its implications to legislation that came out of the act and regulations following the disaster. 

A synopsis to Dr Cobb's lecture can be read by following the link below:
