Motion text

That this House notes with concern the huge human and financial cost of occupational cancers, with an estimated 8,000 lives lost and around 13,500 new cases registered each year in Britain and a national economic cost the Health and Safety Executive puts at double-figure billions annually; further notes the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health's No Time to Lose campaign, which seeks to raise awareness of this significant health issue, suggests solutions to tackle the problem and helps businesses to deliver effective prevention programmes; and calls on the Government to support proactive regulator activity in this area, more research and the creation of a national carcinogen exposure database.
