§ Mr. Carmichael
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what plans the Government has to include fibromyalgia syndrome in the list of diseases which enable industrial injury payments. 
§ Malcolm Wicks
We have no plans to recognise fibromyalgia syndrome as a prescribed industrial disease. A disease may only be prescribed if there is a recognised risk to workers in an occupation, and the link between disease and occupation can be established or reasonably presumed in individual cases.
