(2)Accordingly, they constitute actionable harm for the purposes of an action of damages for personal injuries.

(3)Any rule of law the effect of which is that asbestos-related pleural plaques do not constitute actionable harm ceases to apply to the extent it has that effect.

(4)But nothing in this section otherwise affects any enactment or rule of law which determines whether and in what circumstances a person may be liable in damages in respect of personal injuries.

Commencement Information

(2)Those conditions are—

(a)asbestos-related pleural thickening; and

(b)asbestosis.

(3)Accordingly, such a condition constitutes actionable harm for the purposes of an action of damages for personal injuries.

(4)Any rule of law the effect of which is that such a condition does not constitute actionable harm ceases to apply to the extent it has that effect.

(5)But nothing in this section otherwise affects any enactment or rule of law which determines whether and in what circumstances a person may be liable in damages in respect of personal injuries.

Commencement Information

(a)in which the damages claimed consist of or include damages in respect of—

(i)asbestos-related pleural plaques; or

(ii)a condition to which section 2 applies; and

(b)which, in the case of an action commenced before the date this section comes into force, has not been determined by that date.

(2)For the purposes of sections 17 and 18 of the Prescription and Limitation (Scotland) Act 1973 (c. 52) (limitation in respect of actions for personal injuries), the period beginning with 17 October 2007 and ending with the day on which this section comes into force is to be left out of account.
