I welcome the Government's Mesothelioma Bill, which was debated in Parliament earlier this week.

However, I remain concerned that it doesn't go far enough for the victims of this fatal disease. For decades the insurance industry has failed to meet its responsibilities and now the Government seems set on favouring insurance providers’ needs over those of claimants'.

There is a genuine opportunity to get a better deal for victims of mesothelioma; my colleagues and I intend to fight for it.
