Asbestos Related Diseases

That this House notes that many workers who produced gas masks at Boots for the Second World War effort have since died from asbestos-related diseases; and calls for a full public inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the deaths and for the company and the relevant government departments to establish a compensation fund and to help the surviving victims without delay.
