Living With Mesothelioma -My Diary- Tulips planted to see in the spring. The Mesothelioma Bill was read again

It was a lovely grey day when we got up so boring.

I did get out in the garden and plant my bulbs at last I hope the recover from a late planting as these are the bulbs that  Yvonne sent from Amsterdam so they are all tulips ( No I didnt see a mouse)


I was called for on Motorhome facts to help a lady out whos husband has been confirmed with lung damage caused by asbestos. I was able to have a good discussion with so many others but most of all I was able to to give all my info I have collected and to share with everyone. I was surprised that there were other Motorhomers suffering  or had a lost some one with the disease.

There has been a great reading of the Mesothelioma Bill in the House of Commons  

Kevan Jones has been telling that Asbestos Dangers have been known since Roman times, he has congratulate the Unions as they have educated Industry in Asbestos .

My Own Tracey Crouch gave a great speech. There really is a lot of work going on behind the scenes on Asbestos . All the members back Tracey in more money for Research so they call for it to be added into Bill.

The schools were mentioned as well and a call for ridding the schools of Asbestos  all made for a good debate.

So They have raised points that they are very happy to have taken forward as an Amendment to the Bill –I hope they agree.

I will put a link on tomorrow if I can.

House of Commons Library Analysis

The House of Commons Library produces briefing papers to inform MPs of key issues. The papers contain factual information and a range of opinions on each subject, and aim to be politically impartial. The Library has published a briefing paper for the second reading.

What happens at second reading?

At second reading the House debates the whole principle of the bill. It usually takes place no sooner than two weekends after first reading.

The Member in charge or the Minister moves the motion ‘that the bill be now read a second time’. MPs then debate the bill.
At the end of the debate the Speaker determines whether there are any objections to the motion being debated and asks for the Ayes and Noes.

Members voice their opinion, and if no objections are made, the bill passes second reading without a vote. If the Speaker believes Members have voiced disagreement a division is called and a vote taken.

What happens after second reading?

If the motion at second reading is agreed to, the Bill will go to a Public Bill Committee for consideration.
