To ask the Secretary of State for Health when he expects his Department to provide updated leaflets with information for those with mesothelioma. (324094)

Information for people with mesothelioma is available from the British Lung Foundation, the Department for Work and Pensions, and other sources. Information leaflets for clinicians and for the general public about the health implications of pleural plaques have been commissioned from, respectively, the British Thoracic Society and the British Lung Foundation. We understand that these leaflets will be published in the near future.
