Quicker Action on Compensation

Dave is calling for the government to speed up its review of compensation for pleural plaque sufferers.

He and other MPs have campaigned for a change since the House of Lords ruled that sufferers could not get compensation and the Justice Minister Bridget Prentice promised a twelve week review.

Dave said,

“Bridget said it would be a 12-week consultation and we’ve asked for it to be shortened. We want to get results as quick as we can.”

The government says it is listening, and plans to have the results ready for the Queen’s Speech ion November, but has said it will publish as soon as it can.
