That this House welcomes the Action Mesothelioma campaign to improve treatment and conditions for people with the asbestos-related chest cancer; further welcomes the positive assessment that has been made by many patients of their medical care in the British Lung Foundation's survey of people affected by mesothelioma; notes with concern that many patients say they have not received guidance in relation to end of life care or been given the option to take part in medical trials; further notes the results of a British Lung Foundation audit of cancer networks, which shows the the Mesothelioma Framework has a positive impact on cancer networks throughout England; further notes with concern that many clinicians and nurses do not have the time or resources fully to implement this guidance; recognises that national guidelines are needed in order to ensure that coroners' inquiries 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 Bill will lead to effective action to improve the standards of coroners' investigations across England and Wales.
