Motion text

That this House welcomes the Mesothelioma Bill (HL Bill 3) currently before Parliament which seeks to remedy the historic failure of insurance companies to maintain records of employers' liability insurance, which has led to those suffering from long-latent asbestos-related diseases whose employers are no longer trading and who have been unable to trace their insurers going for decades uncompensated; and believes when concluded the Act should contain an employers' liability scheme which would provide an insurance fund of last resort to pay full compensation for all affected by this terrible disease.
