Going our own way…

The Scottish Government have decided to introduce a bill to reverse the House of Lords recent judgement on pleural plaques, and give sufferers some chance of compensation. This will mark a difference in Scots law, and English / Welsh law on the subject, and would have retrospective effect to the date of the House of Lords judgement.

As Scots Law News (709) says though, it’s unlikely that the money involved will be huge…but at least it’ll allow those who face the prospect of a horrible disease developing the satisfaction of acknowledgement of their condition in some way.

No timetable for the introduction of the Bill as yet.

  1. I just saw this! Not sure if I’m the Jennie Law librarian you found. But I am a librarian and surnamed Law so I may be who you are referring too. What is the professional organization system for librarians in Scotland? I’m super curious about library stuff from other countries!
