LORDS RULING ON PLEURAL PLAQUES

That this House is disappointed by the Lords of Appeal Judgment in the pleural plaques cases given on 17th October; believes that pleural plaques caused by exposure to asbestos result in physiological damage which constitutes a loss of faculty meriting compensation; calls on the Secretary of State for Justice to discuss with the Department for Work and Pensions the introduction of a register for those diagnosed with the disease to include details of employment and the employers' insurers and to instigate discussions on an appropriate compensation scheme financed by the insurance industry because it is now clear that workers suffering the condition will not get compensation through the courts.
