I welcome a great deal of what the Minister said. He acknowledged that we already have his commitment to an annual report to Parliament in relation to the diffuse mesothelioma payment scheme. I think I heard him say that there would be a similar commitment to progress on identifying the possibility of extending schemes to other asbestos-related diseases, though I do understand the issues that he raised.
