Motion text

That this House notes that the report from the Interim Chemical Review Committee, a part of the United Nations Environmental Programme, recommended that all forms of asbestos should be subject to strict international trade controls to eliminate the risk associated with the material; and calls on the UK Government to use its presidency of the G8 and the EU to take the lead in pressing for a worldwide ban on all forms of asbestos, because death and disability caused by exposure to these fatal fibres in the developing world increases world poverty.
