Scope and content

Documents the foundation, by the Society of Labour Lawyers, of the ‘[SPAID] Legal Working Party’ (originally called ‘Asbestosis Working Group’) and some of its meetings 1980-1986. The brief of the working party was 'to examine the law and procedure on asbestosis claims, with particular reference to the inter-relationship between Coroners' Courts and the Pneumoconiosis Medical Panels'. The idea was to create a forum for helping Nancy Tait with research and also 'a useful tool for Parliamentary lobbying without infringing SPAID's charitable status'.
