Although I have been pleased to see that a concession has been made in the LASPO for mesothelioma sufferers I echo APIL's thoughts that this should amount to more than lip service.

In short, the Government has agreed not to introduce any changes to the 'no win no fee' agreements currently used in respect of victims of mesothelioma until the impact of the changes proposed to all other Personal Injury Claims has been reviewed.

APIL president Karl Tonks has stressed that it will  be 'critical that this is a genuine review and not simply a delay in implementing the Government's original proposals.'

LASPO received Royal Assent on the 1 May 2012.
