White Asbestos And Mesothelioma Cancer

EDM number 1312 in 2001-02, proposed by Michael Clapham on 14/05/2002.

That this House is concerned that recent articles written by representatives of the asbestos industry seek to portray white asbestos as a benign substance, and are confusing the debate by concentrating on the chemical structure of the material when it is the structure of the particle that is the pertinent factor and ignoring the balance fo evidence that white asbestos is involved in the aetiology of mesothelioma cancer.

This motion has been signed by a total of 114 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
