I solved the problem, and in case it is of interest to others, I'll explain here.

Last might I placed two self adhesive carpet tiles on the floor alongside two squares of foil held down with masking tape. This evening the screed under the floor tiles was damp. That under the foil was bone dry. Hence the cause of the damp is condensation.

Given that the house was treated for penetrating damp 20 years ago, I do wonder if that damp was also condensation.

probably best just to get a asbestos survey done, just dont get robbed when searching around a management survey costs around 140+240 depending on size of hse rnd survey can be anything from 250+ depends on size of property hope this helps. Also if ya unsure its asbestos best to get a asbestos test these are notmally quite cheap from £60
