Action Mesothelioma Campaign

EDM number 506 in 2010-12, proposed by Lorely Burt on 14/07/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Industrial health and safety.

That this House welcomes the British Lung Foundation's Action Mesothelioma campaign to improve treatment and care for people with asbestos-related chest cancer; notes with concern that a British Lung Foundation survey shows that half of people who have done DIY did not know that asbestos was used as building material as recently as the 1990s; further notes that 42 per cent. of the people who have done DIY still believe that asbestos was used in residential properties but has since been removed; further notes that worryingly 58 per cent. of homeowners surveyed said that they had never received information on how to identify or manage asbestos; recognises that national guidelines are needed in order to ensure that coroners' inquests following a death from mesothelioma are carried out in a way that is sensitive to the needs of the bereaved; and calls on the Government to ensure that the proposals contained in the Coroners and Justice Act lead to effective action to improve the standards of coroners' investigations across England and Wales.

This motion has been signed by a total of 48 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
