The Mesothelioma Act 2014 grants the Secretary of State the power to establish a Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme for making payments to eligible people with diffuse mesothelioma and eligible dependants of people who have died with diffuse mesothelioma.
The Regulations increase the lump sum amounts payable to certain persons disabled by a disease to which the Regulations apply, including pneumoconiosis, or to dependants of persons who were so disabled before they died.
Under the Pneumoconiosis etc (Workers' Compensation) Act 1979 lump sum payments may be made to certain persons disabled by a disease to which the Act applies, or to dependants of persons who were so disabled immediately before they died.
