Motion text

That this House welcomes the first Action Mesothelioma Day on 27th February and the campaign, led by the British Lung Foundation, which aims to raise awareness of mesothelioma, the asbestos cancer; regrets that one person in the UK dies from mesothelioma every five hours, in most cases 20 to 40 years after their exposure to asbestos; further regrets that incidence of the disease is rising and is not expected to peak until 2015; supports the 15 point Mesothelioma Charter which calls for faster diagnosis, better treatment and care services, more funding for research and prevention of future asbestos exposure; and urges the Government and the Cancer Tsar to make mesothelioma a national priority.
