Motion text

That this House is concerned that recent articles written by representatives of the asbestos industry seek to portray white asbestos as a benign substance, and are confusing the debate by concentrating on the chemical structure of the material when it is the structure of the particle that is the pertinent factor and ignoring the balance fo evidence that white asbestos is involved in the aetiology of mesothelioma cancer.
