Low-cost clothing at Brent Cross? "Majority of Bangladesh garment factories 'vulnerable to collapse'"

Link to The Guardian

"Three-fifths of garment factories in Bangladesh are vulnerable to collapse, according to a survey by engineers in the country.

"Last month, concrete pillars supporting the eight-storey Rana Plaza building on the outskirts of the capital, Dhaka, gave way. More than 1,100 people, mainly young women making clothes for UK retailers such as Primark were killed in one of the world's worst industrial accidents.

"The survey's revelation - that the lives of millions of Bangladeshi workers, often making goods for western firms, are at risk - will concern western retailers which, following global outrage after the Rana Plaza collapse, are now moving to improve security and conditions in the Bangladesh factories that supply their shops."
