HC Deb 16 July 1962 vol 663 c2W
Dr. Stross

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance, in view of the fact that there is a close association between bronchogenic cancer and long exposure to asbestos dust, whether this disease is accepted by the pneumoconiosis boards as being of industrial origin.

Mr. Sharples

I understand that the pneumoconiosis medical boards accept bronchogenic carcinoma when found in conjunction with asbestos as a sequela of that disease.
