Lord Alton’s Private Members Bill was published today. The Mesothelioma (Amendment) Bill seeks to amend the Mesothelioma Bill, which of course the Government prevented from having a research funding provision inserted into it. Lord Alton’s Bill provides for up to 1% of the levy the insurance industry will be paying under the provisions of the Mesothelioma Bill, to be channelled into research into mesothelioma. To help Lord Alton’s Bill the public must show the Government its support for research funds to be made available. One way in which this can be done would be to sign my petition requiring the Government itself to provide funding.
