That ruling had held that the occurrence of pleural plaques is not a compensatable disease.</p><p> </p><p>Eligibility for the scheme was limited to that category of people as they would have had an understandable expectation of receiving compensation when they began their claim, an expectation which would not have been shared by those diagnosed later.</p> more like this
