Cabin Air Safety & Aerotoxic Syndrome

Many people in Inverclyde had been in touch asking me to attend a debate that was going on in Westminster Hall today [17/03]. Specifically two members of cabin crew who wanted to highlight that the aerotoxic syndrome symptoms have been about for some time. The debate was brought forward to raise awareness of safety for air crew and passengers and the presence of aerotoxic syndrome.

The problems stem from the risk of breathing in contaminated fumes from the aeroplanes engine. It is widely accepted that there will be times that toxins enter the cabin and currently there is no mechanisms in place to detect these fumes.
