ABI welcomes plans for Mesothelioma Bill

The Association of British Insurers (ABI) has welcomed the announcement in the Queen’s Speech that people with the asbestos-related cancer mesothelioma in the UK will get more financial help under a package of measures in the Mesothelioma Bill. This will include support for up to 3,000 sufferers who currently go un-compensated, and a more streamlined system to speed up the claims process.

Mesothelioma is a cancer that affects the lining of internal organs such as the lungs. It is caused by exposure to asbestos and is fatal.

Otto Thoresen, ABI's Director General, said:

“Mesothelioma is a devastating disease which has a terrible impact on sufferers and their families. The insurance industry wants to do all it can to help sufferers and has worked with the Government on this package of measures that will deliver help to claimants much faster, including to those who would otherwise go uncompensated.”
