With this it will be convenient to discuss new clause 7—Establishing additional schemes: pleural plaques—

‘(1) The Secretary of State shall, within twelve months of any scheme under this Act being implemented, prepare and lay before each House of Parliament a report assessing the costs and benefits of extending the scheme to—

(a) eligible people with pleural plaques; and

(b) eligible people with other asbestos-related industrial diseases where there are unresolved insurance disputes.’.
