Government announcement on pleural plaques expected shortly

Gordon Brown has promised that action will be taken shortly to help victims of pleural plaques.

In a response to a question from Mr. Stephen Hepburn (Jarrow) (Lab) who asked what he intended to do about the thousands of predominantly working-class pleural plaques sufferers who have been robbed of their compensation by unjust decisions in the law courts.

The Prime Minister responded by stating that "Asbestosis is a terrible disease, and all those who suffer from it deserve the best of help from the public authorities. It is right that we look again at this as a result of legal actions that have been taken about the obligations of insurance companies. The Justice Secretary will make a statement on this when we return after Easter."
