Pleural Plaques And Access To Compensation

EDM number 871 in 2012-13, proposed by Paul Burstow on 19/12/2012.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases and Industrial health and safety.

That this House considers that pleural plaques caused by negligent exposure to asbestos constitute actual harm; calls on the Government to reassess its stance on access to compensation for people suffering pleural plaques caused by exposure to asbestos and allow sufferers to sue their employers where there is proven negligence; and further calls on the Government to adopt the position taken in Scotland whereby sufferers may bring a claim under civil law for compensation where their condition was caused by the negligence of the employer.

This motion has been signed by a total of 44 MPs.
