Both paint on the chamber’s canvas and the dust on the ceiling were tested and were revealed to be positive for asbestos fibres. The problem was discovered by heritage architects during their usual inspection of the House of Assembly.
The lower house chamber of the South Australian Parliament House has been closed indefinitely after traces of asbestos were found.
Since the traces are considered minuscule , the risk to parliamentarians has been deemed minimal, but the chamber was closed as a precaution until further tests are conducted.
Since the closing of the Assembly Hall, meetings are reportedly being moved to another section of the Parliament House in Adelaide.
